Might be hair splitting by me.. So Peak4 will not sink as such if *not* pulled under water by water current or by you or wave submerge it. Here is a long video sort of "proofing" it. Sure some airpockets left under the kite will help too. Peak fabric density is very close to water density - so actually water temp & density via temp might have some effect with water surface tension. Buoyancy will not lift kite in the air (out of water) but it will keep it on the surface. So yes you can sink it but physics term it will float. Sorry about this term clearing and hair splitting.
Although it is close to the density of salt water, it IS slightly more dense so as soon all the air pockets are gone it will sink. although very slowly due to the large surface area, but it is not a given for it to stay close to the surface over days or weeks.
