      EOSS has standardized on 12 - 15 ft of lift line between the balloon and
      the 'chute apex. This allow the balloon to be laid out over the line prior
      to fill and still clear the parachute, and it also discourages latex shards
      from the bursting (exploding!) balloon from snagging in the 'chute and shroud
      lines.
