Sealing cockpit lockers

Currently the lockers that are under the cockpit seats let in rain water and some water from waves. There is no real 'seal' just a lip that is supposed to catch the water and drain it around the opening and spill it onto the cockpit floor. Is there some sort of weather stripping that I put around the lip to better seal off these lockers?

It's a problem with mildew and creatures hanging out in the 2-3" of standing water in in the stern. Any other gasket like material I can use that won't get stuck to the locker doors in the hot sun? Won't fall apart like foam after a year of use?
