How to make a waterproof hatch for a LEGO boat?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to build a waterproof LEGO (power-) boat using a 54779 Hull.

Have already attached the hull to the deck using silicone but haven't found a way to build a hatch on top of the deck in order to:

1. Protect the electronics inside and

2. be able to easily remove the deck to switch the battery inside the boat on and off.

Just covering the deck with base-plates is (unfortunately) not enough. Water is still finding a way inside. Putting plastic foil under the base-plates is a mess. 

The remaining option (so far) is to make a silicone mold which then works as a rubber strip between the deck and the baseplates to stop the water from going under the baseplates. Definitely not a method with guaranteed success.

Anybody any tips?
