Not a stupid question. Here's some I can think of offhand:
- Bad choice of dive sites based on skill level of the passengers.
- Bad decision to conduct diving operations in light of the weather.
- Failure to warn divers of known risks at the dive site (currents, depths, etc.).
- Failing to take reasonable steps in light of prevailing conditions (current line, chase boat, etc.).
- Forcing a diver to dive with an incompetent buddy selected by the captain.
- Failing to respond to emergencies in an appropriate manner.
- Failing to perceive and treat and/or mistreating diving-related injuries, or to have appropriate facilities on board for such treatment.
- Running over divers in the water.
Part of what goes into characterizing an operation as a good dive boat is the assessment that these risks are not in fact significant for that particular boat.
