Smugglers' Cove Boat Club sits on the west (Canadian) bank of the Niagara River about a mile south of Lake Ontario. I am not sure whether there is history to the name, it certainly seems like an ideal spot for some clandestine traffic. The history may not be in the too distant past either. The shore in the background is NY State and there must have been an awful lot of contraband, of one sort or another, passing across this stretch of water over the years.
