Petty Officer Boatswain Peter "Pete" Tomaszewski is a fictional TV character on the show Sea Patrol. He is portrayed by Jeremy Lindsay Taylor.


Peter Tomaszewski (Also Pete) is the Boatswain on board HMAS Hammersley. As the ship's Boatswain, he's also known as Buffer - the ship's 'buffer' between it and trouble.

Personal life[edit]

In season one he competes with ET for Nikki's (Nav) affections. Eventually Nav chooses ET.

Buffer's mother is revealed to have terminal cancer in season two. He is distracted by a call from the hospital and Spider and Bomber go overboard without him noticing. He speaks to his mother one more time over the phone and is informed that she died prior to their rescue.

When Buffer spots a mercenary on shore leave he is trapped in a shipping container. The container is transported to the staging post of the mercenaries and Buffer manages to make it to land. He spies on the mercenary camp but is discovered when his phone rings. He manages to get a message to the Hammersley via his girlfriend before he is captured. Ray Walsman orders him to be killed and buried. The mercenary tasked with killing him forces Buffer to dig the grave. Eventually he attacks the mercenary with the shovel and manages to knock him unconscious. The Hammersley search party arrives in time to convince him not to kill the mercenary with the shovel.
