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.
While fishing in the Torres Strait, Charge’s attempts to catch a big fish are foiled by a small Cessna plane flying haphazardly. Charge looks into the origins of the plane, planning to get revenge somehow, but is dissuaded by the CO, who surmises the plane was just thrill seekers.
The Hammersley comes across wreckage from the plane and rescues a single survivor wearing a prison overalls. Bomber struggles with her duty of care in providing pain relief and other medical assistance to a convicted rapist and murderer. Forced to stop at Tiparu Island for additional medical supplies, the crew comes across the escaped convicts who high-jacked the plane and a man claiming to be the pilot. Charge breaks protocol and endangers Bird by allowing her to accompany them to the Island.
A mix-up in the identity of the plane crash survivor threatens Bomber’s life when the realise the pilot is in fact the escaped convict, but Charge shows compassion to another of the convicts who helps him to intervene just in time.
