US website www.pressure-drop.com filed these images of the first stages of her journey and new display place.

USA -17 (nick named Dogzilla) was the wingsailed trimaran, that contested the 33rd America's Cup sailed in Valencia, Spain under the Deed of Gift provisions of the document which governs the conduct of the oldest international sporting trophy. USA-17 won the best of three series 2-0 against the former holder Alinghi. Both teams sailed 120ft multihulls. Since that regatta USA-17 has been housed at the Oracle Team USA base in San Francisco. She is expected to be towed and helicoptered to her new resting place.
