Yes, on cold days tape does not stick well in Canada or anywhere.

So, what you can do is use hatch locks on the rear like gas boats and put a rubber seal on the bottom of each one to keep water out. Some sort of front latch would be a good idea to go with rear hatch lock.

Now to seal it, you can apply a thick layer of siliconeon the inside of the boat hatch, then use vaseline on the top hatch. Make sure you coat the top hatch edges well with vaseline so the silicone will not stick to it and then press the top into the silicone to squish it a bit. Let sit for 24 hrs and remove. You should have a nearly watertight hatch seal that the front lip & hatch locks can put pressure onto the silicone.
