Se my previous answer and associated video link. That guy spent a good bit of time messing with brushless hobby motors and prepping them to be submersible. One of the reasons thrusters cost so much is making them water proof. You can cut some of the cost by doping the motors yourself. you'll just want to get a cheap vacuum pump and pressure cooker to ensure the epoxy is well impregnated into the motor. As demonstrated in the videos. Then the key is finding an optimal and affordable prop for the motors.
