Sealing storage area on board

I am looking for a seal, rubber or similar to place around the rear seat between the bench seat and the support it rests upon.(grp base- wooden bench base.) This is to seal the rear storage and prevent any water ingress whilst having the bench seat down and secured with clips. Presently it sits down wood to grp and is not completely watertight.

Is there a solution? Any ideas? This is on a Ribeye to give those who know an understanding

There is something available in DIY stores that is a flexible seal to go round edges of bath tops against the tiled surface. Not sure if the section would be appropriate and the corners may need to have some kind of jointing if it is not flexible enough to go round. Could be held in place with silicone. Once any weight is on the seat, it should squash enough to seal.
On our Ribeye, we tend to put things under the benches either in dry bags or `tupperware' / clip edge style boxes.

Cheers for help- I went to Southampton firm portmere rubber and they were very helpful-and picked up some waterproof foam with glued one side and fiited to box as shown. That will do the trick with three clips to hold bench down
