As everyone has mentioned here, a trawler is your boat of choice. Converted tugs are also quite popular up here both as cruisers and as floating lodges.

While either of these boats may not make ideal fishers, they're both fine for crabbing and for jigging for rock fish like cod.

One of the big issues with choosing a boat that doesn't have the power to go over 10 knots is that in many situations the current in passes will be over this speed meaning you will have to wait until slack tide to continue your trip but then if you have the time this shouldn't be much of an issue
