The fourth season of the Australian drama Sea Patrol began airing as Sea Patrol 4: The Right Stuff on 15 April 2010. Most regular cast members have returned.
The crew of HMAS Hammersley race to save the life of an American citizen when they receive her frantic mayday, but when they reach her boat they find no-one on board and a bomb hidden below decks. Escaping onto the RHIB they barely get clear when the bomb explodes and the resulting shock wave sends them crashing into the water.
Mike’s heartfelt promise to rescue the woman is questioned by NavCom who ask think he has been at sea too long, and it is time he takes the promotion he is due and moves to a shore-posting.
Joined by their new buffer, Dylan “Dutchy” Mullholland (Conrad Coleby), the Hammersley crew resume their search for the missing woman, but when they find her she has been interrogated for information on the United States Ambassador, who is on a vacation at a classified location.
Hammersley reach the Island holiday spot in time to intercept the terrorists before they can crash their boat loaded with explosives into the Island. Invited to a party by the ambassador to say thank you, Mike tackles a remaining assassin and saves the American ambassador. Mike is promoted to Commander and takes a shore posting. He invites Kate out for a drink to celebrate, and they restart their relationship.
