As for the previous Pirate BBC Essex broadcasts, former Radio London DJ Duncan Johnson was commissioned to voice the jingle package. He visited the ship on 14th August for the station's last day of programmes:

At 3 o'clock on 14th August Steve Scruton of BBC Essex and Ed Stewart, formerly of Radio London, closed Pirate BBC Essex down. BBC Essex then broadcast a documentary, produced by Ray Clark, called All At Sea - August 14th, What Happened Next?. Meanwhile, their job done, the presenters headed for shore. The team had enjoyed good weather for the first five days of the broadcasts but Tuesday was wet and windy. The DJs got a bit damp - as did the masses of listeners who had congregated on the pier to welcome them ashore:
