The classic fishing vessel Genius, built in 1920 at the Skansi shipyard and owned and operated for many years by the Crosby brothers, is once again back where she belongs, in the Crosby-Bezich-Skansi-Nielsen family of Friday Harbor and Gig Harbor.

Jason Crosby, grandson of Leonard Crosby and great nephew of Buddy Bezich, Berniece Skansi and Einar Nielsen, now owns the beloved purse seiner. Jason, who was raised in Friday Harbor like his mother and grandmother, began his fishing career at age 12 with his twin brother Christopher.
