Google’s large barge was the subject of much speculation, as well as legal trouble for its mere presence in the San Francisco Bay (it’s four stories tall). So, after agreeing to a lease within the port, Google Barge has a new home: by docking in Stockton, California.
So, how long was the trip? Well, from Treasure Island in San Francisco to the new port in Stockton, it took 80 miles of nautical travel. Currently, there are claims that Google has agreed to pay in the area of $10,000 to $12,000 per month, while also paying the minimum port rental of three months.
Meanwhile, Google still has yet to announce when the Google Barge might open, if at all — hopefully it’s not a big empty box for storage.
