RE: Parachutes
I heave read on other sites where lots of guys use them. I am not sure how big you would need, probably a trial and error thing. But form what I have read, that if you can get them to grab the current, they do have a considerable pulling ability. Probably not enough to get you free, but I am sure it could be as much as 1 guy pushing? Just be sure you carry a knife in case you need to cut it free if a situation arises.

When I was at BassPro in Calgary a couple weeks ago, they had a wide selection of them. I almost picked one up myself, but am not sure how big to get.
