I am completely unfamiliar with pier systems anchor with chains.  I was on
one once in Charleston and stayed in a Holiday Inn Express so I'm an expert.


Anyway, can you use a double moor system where you run a long chain between
2 moorings (concrete, whatever) then run chains from the piers down to the
chain between the mooings?  You would still have the vertical rise for the
tides but clearance for boats to pass close to the piers.  Similar to a
putting a kellet on an anchor rode.

In most areas of the marina helix moorings would not work. There is not 
enough mud/sand etc. over the bedrock.
Pilings cannot be used because of ice and tide. At low tide the ice 
forms around the piling and as the tide rises the pilings are hauled out.
