You can water proof any servo within minutes using a balloon, plasti-dip, grease, or a few rubberbands...

But I don't think so...[]

To seal it realistically all you have to do is grease the servo horn. Everything else should be sealed pretty tight. I remember I dipped a s3003 servo in a bottle of water without grease or anything. Left it in there for a week. While it was still in the water I plugged it into a receiver and it worked perfectly.

It's a sail winch servo - so those specs are most likely correct.
