SAN DIEGO (AP) â€” A surprising stowaway startled a man out on his boat in San Diego: A sea lion pup who decided to crash in a bunk, waking the owner with his snoring.
Michael Duffy, 48, said he was on his 41-foot Kettenburg boat "Elixir" at the San Diego Yacht Club when he awoke at 2:30 a.m. Sunday to sneezing and snoring.
