    Leave the chain in your shed. 3 strand nylon rope appropriate size and use a couple of feet of flat polyprop fire hose wrapped around the rope where it may chafe. Attach with uv resistant electrical ties.

    If the waves were genuinely up to 3 feet I would probably want the security of a backup chain.
