How to seal the hatch?

I have a ft009, i keep getting water inside, how do you seal it??

I am going to put a go pro on so it will be weighted down, so i need not only to be splash proof but leak proof as well in case water flows on top.

Hi! I have ft012 which is a brushless version with the same issue. I found out that the water comes in through the rear coners of the deck & hull joint.

So I took out the servo and the battery tray, and then put silicone with a cotton swap from the inside of the hull. Now after each run, my boat is dry all the time. I hope it hels!
