Re: floating back to terra firma using three parachutes

"Pinpoint landings don't matter that much as the support crew is at most minutes away."

Yeah, but you still need to go out and collect your huge big multi-ton rocket from wherever it landed, and then get it back to the shed for some fettling to make it ready for the next launch. And that's assuming that somewhere in the many square miles a parachute landing might happen that it didn't come down on an incline or boulder, tipping it over.
