sea lion chasing our sailboat in seattle

This sea lion chased our sailboat crossing Puget Sound from Blake Island on Labor Day weekend. This guy followed and swam under the boat both under sail and power a good 10 minutes. I hear they do this to hide from larger predators... wonder what was in the water? Or did it think we were fishing and hoping to catch a salmon (we were not)? Or was it just friendly? This never gets old.
