Wednesday evening about 17:15 SEA time.

Was that 'flying' or 'floating' ?

KSEA's close proximity to Puget Sound results in a lot of container ships and big ferry boats to show up as primary radar targets...and since floatplanes are often cruising at low altitude, controllers frequently call traffic on those little blips.   Better safe than sorry I guess.

FWIW, I did not post the clip to poke fun at, or be critical of, the controller. I thought the pilot's response was humerous and I was just trying to contribute a little bit.
