I'm not sure what the longevity of brushless motors in water would be - you wouldn't want to get water in the bearings. Seems like a pretty cool frame nonetheless.

The guy that built this goes to the same Techshop as me (a really good guy by the way, he taught me how to use the shopbot).  I have seen him drop the same quad in the water many-a-time without any issues with the motors.  The design is pretty cool and surprisingly lightweight and robust.  Even without dropping one in the water, it is a good frame.  He is one clever dude.

Why not all out Drone Fishing

Florida Key Drone Fishing Tournament 

Location Pidgin Key, fishing off 7mile bridge

Could be fun

Drone fishing, great idea. Would like to try it out at some of the Thai snorkelling islands with a GoPro 3.

Why stop half way? Release a small submarine unit and take the camera even further down :)
