I experimented with this idea on my commercial trawler a number of years ago. As it already had a substantial mast and rigging it was no great difficulty flying a surplus 35 ft. military cargo parachute. My boat weighed 45K light and the parachute did help save fuel on a long run downwind. I intend to add some sort of sail rig to the current boat I'm building.
