Hm ... Not sure if such a story has ever been made. The closest one I can  
think of is "Zio Paperone e il drakkar volante" (I TL 800-A), where Thor  
is mentioned, and Scrooge and the nephews escape from an island on a small  
raft, which Scrooge later exhibits under the name "Scrooge-Tiki" or  
something similar. If it hadn't been so extremely unlikely, I would have  
guessed that story was ordered specifically by the Norwegian publishers -  
almost the entire story is based on talking about famous Norwegian ships.  
Story by Martina, art by Scarpa, ink by Cavazzano.

By the way, the Norwegian translation of Rhett Butler (from Barks' "Lost  
in the Andes") was "professor Tron Dreyerdahl".
