  When I reported to Dutton in April 1979, she was in dry dock in San Francisco. We stayed on Treasure Island.  When I left in April 1980 we were in dry dock in Richmond, just north of SF. 

The Richmond dock was a floating dry dock.  This is the San Francisco dry dock in May, 1979.

  The PDR display of Dutton's bottom track, sometime in 1980.

Some of the crew came and got me, saying:  "You have to take a picture of this!"  They thought the ocean bottom track looked like a woman's breast.  We had been at sea waaaaayyy too long.
