    The green sign is small from here, so if you can’t quite read it, it simply says “3” – meaning three miles per hour.

    How many pleasure boats depart or return at that speed?

    Very few, say the harbor seals, who swim here and sun themselves on the jetty, somewhere on the Olympic Peninsula (Wash. state).

    Well, no wonder, the wrong units. It should be knots!

    That small sign deserves a big crop!

    Now two signs become apparent, which I hadn't noticed.

    The lower (white) sign needs no explanation: “Boaters 3 MPH please”

    I thought the higher (green) sign “3” indicated the same speed, but then I remembered Google is my friend:

    “When proceeding toward open water (seaward), navigate so that the Green Aids are
    to starboard. In this instance, you will see odd numbers on the Aids and the numbers
    should decrease as you proceed toward open water (seaward).”

    -----
    As for the harbor seals mentioned above, I'm not sure what units of measure they go by, – MPH, knots, or their own system of units which we humans probably can’t … fathom.
