Westport is about 10 miles from me and about the same from New Bedford, which was the largest whaling port in the US and inspired many great books including Moby Dick. Today NB has one of the largest fishing fleets in the US, usually challenged for that title by Gloucester, north of Boston where the movie the Perfect Storm was partially filmed.. NB has a great whaling museum and a seamen's bethel where hundreds of lost fishermen from the last two centuries are memorialized including a good friend's father.
