Schacht Maple or Cherry Boat Shuttles
are all beautifully shaped and well balanced. They are sanded smooth and then given a hand-rubbed Danish oil finish. Four sizes are available: 9, 11, 13 and 15 inch. The smallest bost shuttle, the 9 inch mini, is styled after a Japanese silk shuttle. This duck-nosed shuttle is wonderful for narrow widths and fine yarns. Schacht's most popular boat shuttle, the 11 in. boat shuttle is offered in a slim or regular open botton model. 11 inch closed bottom can be special ordered.
The two largest boat shuttles are 13 and 15 inches long, and can handle fine to medium weight yarns. Because of their extra length and yarn capacity, weavers often choose these shuttles for wider weaving widths.
Also available is a slim double-bobbin boat shuttle which is edeal for doubled weft threads. Two separate bobbin shafts make it possible to remove one bobbin at a time. All boat shuttles are available in hard maple and some models are also available in cherry.
