Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't a diesel be nearly submerged and still run? In other words, a good match for the moisture and other conditions of a marine environment.

Is it clear how resistant the electric engines (and their systems) are to water and other less than great things that might happen under duress?

Thanks!
