VHF casings ???

Hi

We are currently having difficultys with our VHF sets breaking a little too often due to water ingress.
I am looking for some sealed casing that will cover the whole of the radio, i have seen them but cannot seem to find them online.
Just hoping maybe someone on here may have an idea.

Cheers

Problem is they are to be installed on a rescue boat and when your in rough seas trying to talk into the mic ,there is every chance of pushing buttons on the mics. less buttons on mics by experiance are better for us .
