The Brixham lifeboat is named RNLB Alec and Christina Dykes in memory of Mrs Helen Christina Dykes whose bequest covered almost half of the build cost. A number of other individuals and organisations made significant contributions to the lifeboat and its facilities. These are noted on a brass plaque which is mounted in the wheelhouse. Mrs Dykes during her lifetime donated a D Class to Ilfracombe Station which was named in memory of her husband.
