OK, so GIMP doesn't like blurred backgrounds when optimising for GIF animation, ignore that, what do you guys think of the logo? I can't help thinking something's missing.
It's for a seafood restaurant with a old-worldy sailing theme, hence the anchor.
Any criticism welcome :)

@James Dinsdale I feel i've seen this logo somewhere else before with a different year. But I think it would work great for a seafood restaurant. Depending on how they portray themselves, more modern / contemporary / fushion i'd say go with the dark red or even a black, to give it class, but if it's a more simplistic restaurant stick with the white one. Cheers
Cheers @Ty, actually we'll be using both, the white over the image as shown above will be used on the website, and the red will be used (with negative space instead of white text) on their menus

Lovely work. Prefer the contrasted effect the red makes over the transparent white, if I'm honest. Also, my eyes are oddly drawn to the crossing lines in the center instead of the anchor; any way you can maybe drop the opacity down a smidge on it? Just a thought!
Cheers man, the white space on the red background would be negative space on the final design, to go on parchment colored menus, and toying with the idea of getting a stamp made to use on receipts etc. Might try reducing the stroke width on those lines instead though cos I agree they are a little too prominent
Putting the date on an icon doesn't really work when it's the current year.
@Erik Binggeser it's a new restaurant so the date is this year :)
@James Dinsdale It's really nice James. You inspired me to have a bash at it. I must admit i don'tlike the typography on this tho. Is the restaurant classy. What image would they like to portray?
@James Dinsdale Yes I understand that. But dates on logos are usually there to signify an established business and the experience they have. Putting 2012 on a logo just shows they are new and might not really know what they're doing.
Just a lil tip is all.
