Used in the making of several films, The Tropic Rover’s was even chartered by the author of  the classic film Jaws, Peter Benchley, who spent time at on Tropic Rover studying the behaviour of sharks on the reef.

As well as assisting in production, research and location scouting for the movies, The Tropic Rover starred in documentaries, was used in the production of the TV Series “Flipper” and was chartered by National Geographic.

On 1 August 2009, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority named a reef in the Mackay/Capricorn Management Area of the Marine Park “Ron Isbel Reef “in honour of the great respect and knowledge Ron held of the reef.
