The fifth and final series of the Australian drama Sea Patrol began airing as Sea Patrol 5: Damage Control on 26 April 2011.
During a boarding to arrest 2 bank robbers, Dutchy is shot by a masked female accomplice and Kate kills her in self defence. The woman is later revealed to be Isabelle McGinley the younger sister of Heath McGinley, one of the robbers who managed to escape police custody with his partner. Kate then finds herself being terrorized by McGinley, who is trying to kill her to avenge his sister, first attacking her at NAVCOM and then when Dutchy went to her home to get some clothes, McGinley was already inside.
Meanwhile, Ryan White has just graduated from Naval College and invited Bird to a graduation party. While there, they and 2Dads are approached by a young man named Corey, who challenges them to a speedboat race, which ends in 2Dads being arrested while Corey escaped. Later that night, 2Dads is drugged and has his uniform and ID stolen, which is used by a mystery man to access the Navy Base and attack Kate, though he escapes from Dutchy and Mike.
While being chewed out, 2Dads identifies the attacker as Corey, who they realize was targeting a member of the Hammersley crew to get to Kate. Worse, Bird has disappeared, and Corey is soon identified as Corey McGinley, brother of Heath and Isabelle. Now the crew must muster all hands to stop 2 revenge-driven murderers and rescue Bird.
