Steller sea lions apparently don't play around when it comes to pirating people's boats.
In Olympia, Washington, Josh Phillips was enjoying a spot of fly fishing when he came upon a yacht that appeared to have a little problem - two giant sea lions were sunning themselves on their stolen craft, clearly unbothered by the strain the small boat was taking under their weight.

Steller lions roam the northern Pacific and while the average weight for males is 544kg, they can weigh up to over a thousand kilogrammes - and these two look like winners for the heavyweight category.
Phillips went back later to see how the yacht was faring - but it seems the two animals were just too much for it and sent it to a watery grave.

According to Popular Mechanics, Steller sea lions use land - in this case a boat - to escape predators and to regulate their body temperature by catching some rays through incredible biology.
The owner of the boat, however, was probably less impressed with these pirates' tanning session - although one commentator has wondered if this wasn't part of some elaborate insurance scam.
