So off the top of my head there's at least one big redbay that was delivered there, but I think the story you are thinking of will be Mike and his wife in Magellan Echo... Note I might have the boat name wrong...

I also think one of the parkers has gone to Denmark.

OK I have refreshed my memory - Mike Garside sold Magellan Echo and then built Magellan Zulu for this trip: Heading for Norway...

I believe the Gillespie Brothers went to Norway as well.
They said they went, arrived, nobody spoke English, they went up and down one fiord in the rain and then came back again.
