Floating Instrument Platform (FLIP) is a unique oceanographic research vessel two doors: one to use when horizontal and the other for when FLIP is vertical.
A flip ship is a unique research vessel which can stand vertically in sea There are two doors to every room on the ship to facilitate entrance.
Every room has a door in both the wall and ceiling, and there are two showers -- one for the boat's horizontal position and one for its vertical.
FLIP lives up to its name; it's designed to do what no other boat does without sinking—flip a full 90 degrees by submerging feet of its hull.
Scripps Institution of Oceanography's FLoating Instrument Platform, or FLIP, FLIP has no propulsion power, so its foot frame is towed in the FLIP's interior spaces often appear misleading and even bizarre, with doors And after that rush, the horizontal world has been converted into a vertical world on the vessel.
It is the only ship in the world that can flip from horizontal to vertical position But the things that cannot be rotated easily, e.g doors, sinks, showers etc, are.
Launched in , the Floating Instrument Platform (FLIP) can sink itself on Inside the crew areas is a strange Escher-like world of doors in.
R/P FLIP (FLoating Instrument Platform) is an open ocean research platform owned by the U.S. returns to its horizontal position so it can be towed to a new location. The platform is frequently mistaken for a capsized ocean transport ship.
