Looking for some information on what on my Rattlesnake plans call "seats of ease". I do know what they are....ahem....used for, but on the plans all I see is a circle. I'd like to put some detail into this feature if in fact they are something more than just a round thingy to sit on while catching up on reading. Thank you in advance.

HMS Victory’s heads. From the left internal in the roundhouse on the f’cstle, on the beak head of the f’cstle itself and the last in the quarter galleries C3E7F244-A48F-4534-836B-BD318F30878C.jpeg

Another set on the beakhead, up against the forward bulkhead. This was the same on smaller frigates and possibly sloops like the rattlesnake. 139025B8-7889-4B98-AB5D-FE9135097D2B.jpeg

And often mis looked on models are the piss pots. A urinal here on the f’cstle though also would be found towards the aft end of the waist near the beginning of the main mast channels.50B57257-2696-439C-B283-6ACDEEF697BD.jpeg
