I think the correct date of tow out, should be 1977. The Dunlin has been producing since 1978.

That is my photo. You are correct the photo was taken in June 1977. At the time I was on board, the dive support vessel 'Intersub Three', which was onsite to remove the tow chains after the Dunlin-A was situated on the sea bed.
