Where can I hear a good Nantucket accent?

I'm reading Moby Dick to my son right now, and whenever I get to Ahab's lines, I find myself slipping into a West Country pirate accent (or the Sea Captain's from The Simpsons). I want to hear a real Nantucket accent (bonus for a good facsimile of a mid-nineteenth century whaleman's accent) so I can do it right.

Any good books-on-tape versions? Or just some random soundclips or youtube videos I could listen to? I don't want to rent a movie version of Moby Dick until we're done with the book.
