RIP Prof. Thiel

Godspeed to Philip Thiel. He died last month at age 93. He was my professor at architecture school. Originally he got his degree in naval architecture at Web. I got to keep in touch with him through the Small Boat & Yacht Designers Group. Was brilliant professor. I had not realized he also recently combined tiny house with boats. http://tinyhousetalk.com/pedaling-afloat-with-phil-thiels-tiny-houseboats/

Back when I lived on the yellow trimaran, he used to pedal up on his pedal boat and we would talk.

  1. Hi Kurt,

    Thank you for sharing.

    Loved the self-propelled tiny houseboats.

    Very innovative.
