Freebase

  1. Inflatable

    An inflatable is an object that can be inflated with a gas, usually with air, but hydrogen, helium and nitrogen are also used. One of several advantages of an inflatable is that it can be stored in a small space when not inflated, since inflatables depend on the presence of a gas to maintain their size and shape. Function fulfillment per mass used compared with non-inflatable strategies is a key advantage. Stadium cushions, impact guards, vehicle wheel inner tubes, emergency air bags, and inflatable space structures employ the inflatable principle. Inflation occurs through several strategies: pumps, ram-air, billowing, and suction. Although the term inflatable can refer to any type of inflatable object, the term is often used in boating to specifically refer to inflatable boats.

Examples of inflatable in a Sentence

  1. Jeremy Goldbogen:

    First we have to find a blue whale, which can be very difficult because these animals range across vast swaths of the open ocean. By combining many years of field experience and some luck, we position a small, rigid-hulled, inflatable boat on the whale's left side, we then have to deploy the tag using a six-meter (20-foot) long carbon-fiber pole. As the whale surfaces to breathe, we tag the whale in a location that we think is closest to the heart: just behind the whale's left flipper.

  2. Phil Thomas:

  3. Gary Smith:

    If you really want the max wildlife, the small ship is the way to go, most of them carry Zodiacs (small inflatable boats), and they go out to the islands, which are unspoiled. A small ship doesn’t have a tight schedule, so they can follow the wildlife and cut the engines.

  4. Casey Mead of G Adventures:

    Sailing Spitsbergen to Greenland following the ice's edge with an eye peeled to the horizon for wildlife is exhilarating, landings are on foot and in small inflatable boats.

  5. Charles Robba:

    My trip to the Mergui enlarged my appreciation for moving out of more commercial, westernized tourist areas elsewhere in Southeast Asia, one feels like an explorer on several levels. Viewing new landscapes each day, going on a RIB (rigid-hulled inflatable boat) to explore a beach, or taking a kayak by oneself to quietly drift off provides you with a new perspective to one's sense of the place.
