A former motor lifeboat of the German Society for the Rescue of Castaways
The "Rickmer Bock" is a former motor lifeboat of the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS). It was built at the August Pahl shipyard in Hamburg-Finkenwerder.
The boat, with the DGzRS internal designation KRB (Küstenrettungsboot) 208, was put into service in October 1944 as Hindenburg, but was already renamed Geheimrat Heinrich Gerlach III in December 1944; Gerlach was the chairman of the DGzRS district association Memel, who died in 1912. In October 1950 the boat was renamed again and received the name "Rickmer Bock". Rickmer Bock was a long-time foreman of the DGzRS on the island of Helgoland, deceased in 1950.
In total, the crews of this boat were able to rescue 1,223 people from distress at sea during its active period.
