Perhaps someone is having substance abuse issues and has been sleeping in the tub. It's easier to take if it looks more like a bed.
Problem solving, DIY style.
You wouldn't want the walls to get all mildewy from the moisture now would you?
You smell so bad, you're gonna take a bath on the porch, then we'll talk.

I wouldn't mind being abducted if I could hang out in this awesome tub all day.
I wouldn't want to swim under the pier while someone's in the tub but otherwise this is a huge win!
