Go pro 6 on the roof of the boat.. charge while filming, how to protect from water spalsh

Im planning to record our fishing trips from our boats roof rack.. So we are going to keep  gopro 6 in constant charging while filming whole day. The problem is  how to protect usb and hdmi ports from water when usb cord is on.  Any ideas?

 

Second what are the best 256gb memory cards for go pro 6.

 

 

 

 

This lid has to be open if filming while charging. Any aideas how to protect it from water.
