"Compared to built-in settess and other seating,"

Sitting on a chunk of wood with a cushion stinks compared to real sprung and covered seat.

On a shallow draft boat , esp one of Euro design , the bilge keels are so the vessel will stay upright when desired when the tide is out.

Many Brits have berths that can only be accessed from 1/2 tide or more.

They learn to live with it.
