Default Need a snorkle... Submerged my engine bay

Yes, you read that right. I came extremely close to hydrolocking my engine the other day. Decided to see if I could make it across a puddle. About 10 feet from the end, it dropped off steeply. I hit the brakes and popped it into reverse.

My intake had gone completely under water. The water even cleaned the mat under my hood (well, made the filth on it even).

So, where can I get a cheap snorkle, or how can I make one?

Question two: since water went all the way over my alternator, should I be worried about it, and other accessories?

Question three: How much water does it really take to hydrolock an engine?
