On boats with larger swim platforms, I understand that Sea Lions are a reason for them sinking at the dock... a dozen of them will swarm over a boat and try to get comfy... and then the boat will start to sink out from under them.
Hmmm... It would take a lot more ducks than sea lions to sink a boat - though it's a funny visual and either one makes for an entertaining insurance claim.
