Just out of curiosity and lack of knowledge, why do they have parachutes on the boat? Is it just for reasonable stopping distance like a dragster or does it have to do with getting the boat to settle back into the water without taking a long distance to slowly pull the throttles back so the boat doesn't dig or plow when coming off plane to fast?
