The company was named Fulcrumatic Limited and was wound up under insolvency laws about 1982.

I have hard about that. Apparently it was a prototype submarine which was being built by some exccentric from Oxton. He lived in Alfred Road in a house divided into flats, and I know someone who was a tennant of his. He drove an old Land rover.

If this sank in the branch dock, it should of been found when the dock was drained and in-filled, or was it moved before it sank?

I remember the UFO well. We where told by the dock bailiff it was an experimental submersible built by John moores university and it had finished it's programme. We climbed around the gate out across the water and back to the sidewalk and went to check it out.
We were skeptical at first and coy but that didn't last long as it didn't in young boys. We still believed it to be a UFO and boarded it to kill the aliens. Upon not finding them we claimed it as our own and dared them to return. They never did.
By the end of the week it was ours and no one else's. We scared off groups of boys our age and older (as there was a few of us) when they became curious. (SORRY) we then took to stone bombing the docks daily to kill any aliens lurking I'm the water of the dock that may have been hiding.
We played on the submersible for the remainder of the school holiday until it gathered water to the point it was to far gone and starting to fall apart. It eventually sank lower and lower and eventually fell below the water level leaving the small White dome on the top just visible. The following day it was bearly visible below the water. It sank futher each day eventually we couldn't see it any more. The last day we visited the dock it was full to the brim of eels. That many they were writhing on top of each other. Hundreds if not thousands. Writhing on the steps. Dried out dead on the slope. So many it was unbelievable.
It was the Evil spawn of the aliens. I didn't kill any but my friends killed as many as they could it seemed to take all morning. They lay hundreds dead and the hostile planet earth invasion was over. We were about 9-10 years old and it was about 1979-80. Obviously I dont agree what we did then seems good now I have matured. Oh dear- oh very dear.

Hi Igsy et all,

I have been looking on the net and found this forum post thus I joined this forum to make contact with you directly concerning your pretty substantial knowledge of the comings and goings of the Ellipso by Aquashel. You mention some names like Taffy & Tony and moulds. Are there any leads to track down any of these characters or the whereabouts of the moulds if they survived? Would it be possible to dig a bit deeper and find a living contact who might shed some light on the final outcome?

Thanks

Eric
