I have given up trying to transport/keep pass crabs. You can do it, but you need more water and good circulation. Still, you'll lose a lot more. They simply aren't as hearty.

Are you trailering your boat? How far?
The temperature thing is nothing to be concerned with. The water will not be significantly warmer than the water they are living in daily.

This is a physics thing. Warmer water can hold less dissolved oxygen, so by cooling the water you both lower metabolic rates and increase dissolved oxygen in the water. This makes survival more likely. The warmer temp won't kill them if it is in their range of tolerance but reducing metabolism and increasing available oxygen will make survival more likely.
