Hammersley hunts down a mysterious gang of armed robbers who are terrorising pearl luggers off the WA coast, but is there more to the attacks than meets the eye.
Spider and Buffer have a trippy encounter with some hard-partying drug smugglers. 2-Dads faces disciplinary action for negligence when the smugglers get away because he has forgotten to fuel the RHIB’s. But when he tries to retaliate by starting rumours that Kate and Buffer are romantically involve Mike is forced to intervene, and he ends up in more trouble, and facing possible dismissal from the NAVY. Thankfully Kate has a more creative punishment in mind.
