Thank you very much. I was looking for a number like this but
it would have been too difficult to compute.

so now we have a temperature about which we can make our
guesses. The other number we'd really need is the temperature
that pockets of ocean/lake might achieve normally during the course
of the day around the equator. My guess is that it could hit
as hit as around 80 degrees rather easily.

With the temperature differential of about 10 degrees it would
be possible to compute the level of physical activity needed
to keep a state state temperature in water. If it's too high,
we can then compute the proportion of time needed in water
and in air to keep a steady state temperature for survival.
