Coast Guard officials say they are authorized by maritime law to board and search vessels on U.S. waters, including waters that lead to U.S. waters, to enforce federal laws.
I certainly wasn't aware of that. Does that mean that they can search boats docked in Chicago any time they please? Does it also include land-locked bodies of water?

Yes and it's a very good thing.

The Coast Guard has patrolled Lake Michigan and Chicago harbors almost forever.
