Think your date is wrong for the 3rd photo of three Mick - no wheelhouse but on the last later dated photo it's back? ;)

Revisiting the topic of INTEROCEANIC II in one of Mick's photos above indicates a couple of points of interest.
Launched as ROBKAP VI in February 1977 I believe, but not certain, she may have been Russian (U.S.S.R.) flag?
By the time of her completion a full year later she had been renamed and delivered under the Panama flag.
Mick's photo is roughly at the midway point of her fitting out, already renamed and clearly moving under her own steam, propeller thrashing, with tug assistance. On trials, or simply moving berth? The interesting point seems to be that she shows no port of registry and is flying the Red Ensign, so regarded as British flagged at that stage.

Mick, do you know what she was doing that day? Please post your photos of her as INTEROCEANIC II as she does not otherwise feature in the NEM archives!

Miramar has laid down as ROBKAP VI but launched as INTEROCEANIC II, so debate there. A launch photo would be good.
Regarding the lack of POR and the flying of the Red Ensign, suggests to me that she is still Swan Hunter owned and hasn't been handed over yet.
POR still being debated by the eventual owner?
