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.
On patrol in the Indian Ocean, HMAS Hammersley is disabled by a mess of long line fishing nets that tangle the props. The unfouling of the screws is complicated by the discovery of a body tangled in the net. During repairs, the crew take a break on a nearby seemingly deserted island, where they encounter a small carbon neutral community, and Bomber strikes up a relationship with one of the residents.
Evidence linking the body in the net to the island leads to the discovery of a drug operation being run by the community leader but when the investigate they discover the secret runs much deeper.
RO’s social awkwardness gets him in trouble when he mistakes Bomber’s friendship for affection and reports to the CO that they are in a relationship. Bomber is furious when she find out and starts to question whether she really wants to stay in the Navy. But when her life is in danger from the smugglers on the Island, RO ignores her demands that he stays away from her and saves her life, making her realise that having her crew mates around is actually a good thing.
