50 Year anniversary ?  :o  Yeah how come that's the first I have heard or seen of that...very odd thing.

It's a pretty mental piece of kit thats for sure, it must be quite an experience to be onboard when it tips up like that  :eeeek:

It's cool but I have a question.

Why does it go vertical, for what purpose?

DD1975

I have no idea, but suspect it is something to do with the cranes mounted on board, I'll see if i can track soemthing down on it

Well done, interesting thing.  Says at the end : The Officer in Charge of FLIP, Tom Golfinos, has been onboard for 17 years.

Surely not without going on land during that time  :o

Wouldn't be much fun if you where sitting on the Head reading your paper when they decided to tip it up. Talk about "Getting Your Own Back ".  ???
It WILL be fine !...

Am I the only one who's heard of the thing? I learned about the "flip ship" back in High school, and thought it was the coolest thing ever, at the time. :) I even went so far as to ask around how one would get a job on the ship. Hard to do back then, seeing as how the Internet was still 20 years away. :D
