A surface-launched G7a torpedo would hit the water after a 15-20m flight (depending on the tubes height above water, the launch-pressure etc.). The momentum of the torpedo would certainly drive it a further short distance before sinking vertically. A sub-launched torpedo would probably go somewhat shorter due to the increased drag of the water - probably max 50m? (just guessing here).
