Post image for Phil Thiel: the faster you go, the narrower your perspective.

Naval architect Phil Thiel died at the age of 93 in May. Here’s an insight from his Seattle Times obituary:

“Phil’s philosophy was, the faster you go, the narrower your perspective,” Cunningham said. “I learned the word ‘flâneur,’ from him. It refers to a person who sees things in fine detail, who comes across things by chance. That was Phil’s preferred method of traveling.”

His family continues to maintain his website and his pedal-powered boat designs, including the Escargot, available for sale.
