Re: Combination chain/nylon line
With 200 ft of chain, do you expect to need the nylon very often? You can always flake the nylon into the locker and then let the chain stack atop. As mentioned, depending on the geometry of your locker, chain can castle and fall over, but that can happen either way.
The bigger issue is the nylon, at the bottom of the pile, staying wet and collecting all the dirt and grime from the chain. If you don't deploy the nylon often, you'll likely need to get at it and clean it routinely. I would also want to be sure there was a raised locker floor, so the nylon didn't just sit in the dirty slurry.
