I would go with Namor as first of all his strength will now be close to Thors and Namor can manuever through water far better than Thor can.
Thor would get stomped, even if he is a little stronger than Namor in this circumstance.
Namor calls upon the powers of the electric eel. ;-)

Your putting Thor...in the ocean...without Mjolnir... against Namor? No balance, no way to firmly plant his feet for punches, in Namor's element? he'd get stomped hard. What's next, Thor vs Nova Prime in space without Mjolnir? In fact, that'll be a cool gauntlet. Thor vs X, Without mjolnir, in said characters most advantageous surroundings.
Thor vs Namor in the ocean
Thor vs Superman next to the sun
Thor vs X-man in the astral plane
Thor vs Nova Prime in Space
Thor's not getting stomped, in fact he'd win, and he only uses Mjolnir as a club against Namor (Barring one energy blast that missed). Throw in the showings where he illustrates flight without using the hammer, and this doesn't end well for Namor. Even discounting those instances, Thor can apparently swim faster than the fastest of fishes (lol) and has illustrated a lot of maneuverability in water including leaping.
If Thor's portrayed as about as maneuverable as the Hulk, and Namor's speed is shown to be a big advantage as it is against other bricks, allowing him to create a whirlpool or some such, it wouldn't end well as Namora learned. Not with Thor's mastery over the elements.
For the record, I'd favor Thor over Nova Prime in space with or without Mjolnir. Unfortunately, the Astral Plane/the Sun would be far too much of an advantage for Nate Grey/Kal-El.
You found an observation of mine regarding this fight to be incorrect? If so, address the point you wish to contest.
You're welcome to make it. With or without Mjolnir, I would not bet on Nova beating Thor in a fight head on. He could by pulling a more indirect tactic such as a Stargate. If you limit it to Thor not being able to fly or project energy, then I believe he has sufficient power to eventually wear Thor down.
