Low Altitude ‘Village’ Coming to Desert Storm

With a DCB M41 Widebody catamaran, a Mystic Powerboats C5000 catamaran and a Mystic M4200 luxury center console in his stable, top-speed shootout man Win Farnsworth has more than 130 linear feet of high-performance powerboat goodness to display at this year’s Desert Storm Poker Run during the last week of April. And that doesn’t count the various support vehicles for each ride and motorized toys, as well as the always appreciated—by the Low Altitude team and its friends—Coors Light bus.

So rather than having one long, stretched-out exhibit during the Desert Storm Street Party, a mile-long exhibit of high-end go-fast boats and assorted hardware on McCulloch Boulevard, on Thursday night, Farnsworth and company will have their own compound—think of it as a Low Altitude village—on Querio Drive, which crosses McCulloch roughly halfway through the street party.

Farnsworth said he’s looking forward to his team’s new “kiosk-stye” display. “We’ll have all three boats and the trailer, all the videos running and the Coors Light bus, and all of the friends of Mystic and DCB are welcome,” he said. “We have a new ‘T-shirt cannon’ and that should be a lot of fun. I’m working on getting live music, but I’m not sure if we’ll be able to get the power we need.”

Although all three of Farnsworth’s boats currently are for sale, he doesn’t anticipate any of them selling before Desert Storm. What’s more—at least present—he said he’s not looking forward to seeing any of them go.

“I had the boats out a couple of weekends ago,” he said. “It’s a lot easier to want to sell them during the winter.”
