Or perhaps a tunicate?

About 1/4", bell looks like a child's drawing of the moon if the moon was made of clear goo. "Portholes/craters" ringed with white dots. Seems to have several long hairy tentacles like a gooseberry or other comb jelly, but the bell doesn't seem to have comb plates.

On dock.

Mating. In crack on sea wall next to dock. Male about 4" across.

Closely-related Dungeness crab male carries the female around for up to 2 weeks waiting for her to molt. Maybe this species does too.
