'Young Australians battling the elements to defend Australia’s borders and enforce its economic zone, providing security, surveillance, protection, support and relief for the world’s longest coastline. Our heroes are the officers and crew of Australian Naval patrol boat, Hammersley. Together, they share in the adversity, self-sacrifice and rewards that come with Naval service. Explosive action and monumental stillness. Blue skies and throbbing motors. Mysterious events and deadly consequences. These are the things that characterise SEA PATROL. Everyday heroes doing an extraordinary job.'
