My boat's original owner added slightly angled cockpit seatbacks that sit in the spot traditionally used for combings (angled to make them more comfortable to lean against).

I don't think he meant for them to work as combings, as he added drain cuttouts along the seat. However, when I've had a few waves wash down the side deck, it has kept the bulk of the water out of the cockpit... now, I think I'm just going to find something to block up the cutouts and keep my butt dry :-)

They do give me one more thing to trip over in the cockpit, but on the good side, they give me something to step up on to tie down the sail or put in a reef point.

I don't have a clear shot of them, but here are a couple from oblique angles...

And this one...

note the cutouts
