These hilarious photos show how a speedboat called Durex sunk after sea water penetrated a hole in it.<br />
<br />
The 14ft long vessel currently lies in 7ft of water off a Dorset beach called Scratchy Bottom after it sprung and leak and sunk.<br />
<br />
Its crew of three men abandoned ship and swam to the shore.<br />
<br />
Coastguards who were called to rescue them and only realised the boat was named after the famous condom manufacturer when they arrived to find it semi-submerged.<br />
<br />
Written alongside the Durex logo on both sides of the vessel were the words 'great in the wet'.
