Contest Brief

We need a logo for our new website, that will be an online booking/reviews platform for boats. (Major market being sailing boats).
This website is not live yet, but similar in terms of business are [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] (This is just reference site for you to understand the business not as reference for the logo)
Our website name is: [url removed, login to view]

We would like the logo to incorporate the two letter Y and S. Attached is an example of what we would like. ([url removed, login to view])
“S" should reflect rope (orange) Orange should match the orange color of [url removed, login to view]
“Y" shape and color should reflect a cleat (silver iron grey), attached are some picture of cleats. ([url removed, login to view])
The full name should be somehow part of the logo ([url removed, login to view]), not necessarily next to YS as in the attached sample.

We would like a simple sharp logo (no shades and complicated forms), to be memorable and easily recognizable.
Winning bids will be chosen based on creativity, clarity, and punchiness.

Finally the logo should be made in a way to be easy to embroider.
Please provide the logo in high resolution. (Open Format illustrator, Coreldraw etc ..., and close format JPEG)
Also provide the color codes you used.

Thank you!

UPDATE 1
Just wanted to clarify some points based on the current entries:
1. Regarding the Y: when someone looks at the logo, this person should understand that the "Y" represents a "dock cleat".
2. The "S" and Scan should match exactly the color of the attached orange.png.
Thank you!

UPDATE 2
Just added a sample cleat I designed on Paint. This is on the continuation of the great work some of you have done. It must be taken as food for thought of improvement and not start from scratch all over again. We're getting close. I'm sure you guys can do much better than me. Ignore the "S" I made. However getting a creative rope design in "S" shape around the cleat would make the difference. See carefully the cleat design. Some work to do on the "S" shape.

      Thank you very much for the latest update. Some points that may have room for improvement are the following: [1] The "S" of the rope needs to be more clear and visible (an idea why not have a rope shaped in a "S" form with a paint brush instead?). The alignment of the "S" should almost vertical or with a small angle to have some coherence with the "Y" cleat design. [2] Regarding the cleat, the main body I would personally make a bit less thicker and put an horizontal finishing on each extremity of the upper part of "Y". Something like the "Y" with times new roman. [3] For the title I would change the font and use something closer to #2 to have a clear phrasing. For updates please use white fonts only. Thanks

      Very nice images thanks! Here are my comments on them: "S" should be in Orange (as we wrote in the description), "Y" should be in grey (also written in the description), finally the "Y" doesn't resemble much to a "dock cleat".
