In a perfect world, there would be no distractions, plenty of time and our equipment would always work. In reality, this is not the case. Whenever we go diving, there will always be things competing for our attention and prioritisation in a limited time window. Pre-dive checks are just one of those things. Consider, on the boats you dive from, how you can make it easier to do checks and indeed, what else you can do to make the diving safer for everyone.
