Doghouse seal to washboards

I have added a Doghouse to my Dockrell 22, I do not like the doors so have simply added a fourth washboard this makes storage easy, saved hinges and room in the cockpit. My problem is making the top washboard watertight.
Due to the shape of the Doghouse it is narrower at the top than the bottom, the top washboard hinges from the top of the third washboard and bolts on the inside of the cabin.
The problem is that the sides of the washboard simply lay against the side of the Deckhouse, and water comes in between the two.
Has anybody got a solution?
