Description: Logo for an imaginary shipbuilding company, named 'Ahoy Shipbuilders'. Eight 'A' letters are combined to form a ship steering wheel. Due to this assembled character, the mark closely relates to the idea of construction. Comments and critiques are more than welcome!

nice, have you thought about making the helm the same line weight as the 'ahoy' type?

It might be interesting to make that cut in the Ahoy A, that you've made in the wheel A's. Otherwise it probably won't be clear about it being made of A's. I certainly didn't notice until I read the description.

@Colin: Yes, I've definitely considered making the helm a bit slimmer, you might be right - will certainly try :)**@Sam: You're right, I presumed that the A's will not be easily recognizable. In my first attempt I've made the cut in the Ahoy A, but felt it made the name a little bit unstable and took some focus from the mark - this is why I ended up using the clear Ahoy textline.**Thank you for these comments, much appreciated!

Updated: made the cut in the Ahoy 'A' vs initial simple 'A'.*So the question is with or without it?
