You may want to give more thought to water ingress - the biggest models put their rails under.

Close the underside of the grating, even sealing that hatch if it isn't needed, if it is needed, but only now-and-then; gasket it and screw it down.

Glazing the windows in the cabin or put an inner sleeve set-up on it a-la the attached. This makes a tall inner coaming that's more secure and water resistant than just the lid coming off.

Ditto the focs'l hatch - if that's a hatch that needs to be opened regularly - otherwise put a gasket on it and screw it down.
