Sailor wakes up to sea lion sleeping in his boat

A playful but unwanted house guest tried to make a San Diego boat his crash pad for the night.

“I woke up around 2:30 a.m. and heard snoring and sneezing,” said sailor Michael Duffy.

Duffy was sleeping on his 41-foot Kittenburg sloop when he stumbled out of bed to see what was going on.

“The sea lion was curled up just like a dog right on the bunk that you sleep on and I was like, ‘What?,’ ” Duffy told Fox 5 in San Diego.
