      Mysterious structure built on floating barge is seen in San Francisco BayBy Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Able-bodied seamen, decorative sails meant to evoke fish fins and dozens of security cameras will eventually make up the on-board complement of a mysterious four-story barge being built by Internet company Google Inc.
