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.
En route to Karumba to provide flood relief, Hammersley receives a mayday from a vessel that was rammed by a cattle barge. The passengers are recovered, though RO’s failure to disclose that he has recently had surgery endangers the survivors and recovery team. The barge turns out to have been hijacked by cattle thieves. The crew intervenes in a second hijacking and captures the rustlers.
Bird encounters her drug addicted ex-boyfriend Darryl who she joined the Navy to escape after he became possessive, and becomes paranoid to the point she attacks 2Dads in a case of mistaken identity. She later learns that he is involved with the cattle rustlers, after he attacks and impersonates RO to gain access to the ship. RO, struggling with social isolation and learning to be a team player, pulls through and apprehends the stalker ex-boyfriend. Meanwhile, Kate tells Mike she needs to make decisions about her direction in life.
