In reference to Scott Cluff's message, I'll complicate matters more by
noting what terms are in use at another end of the same production process.

In Assembly (where those silicon wafers are processed and packaged), we
use the term "boat" to refer to the teflon container used to transport
the wafers from fabrication into our cleanrooms. After the wafers are mounted
onto taped frames so they can be diced, they are transferred into a cassette.
Since the mounting procedure involves both cassettes and boats, procedure
writing can get a little hairy (and that's not good news in a cleanroom
atmosphere). What happens, then, is that the terms are used differently,
as a rule, in different departments (hope the intermediate step doesn't chime
in now).
