Washington, (ANI): Actor Danny DeVito has revealed that he and fellow star Michael Douglas were once rescued by the coast guard, after they found themselves lost at sea during their ill-fated sailing expedition in the Sixties. He said that the incident happened when he got onto a catamaran with Douglas after being convinced by the latter that he knew how to sail it.

"Michael brought me to Connecticut once. He had some friends who said they had a catamaran. I didn't even know what a catamaran was," Contactmusic quoted him as saying. "He said, 'Come on, let's get a couple of six-packs (of beer) and go out.' I figured he knew how to drive it. We went out into the water, drank the six-packs - we couldn't get back," he added. DeVito also revealed that other people, who were also sailing at that time, were using them as a buoy. "And there were people out there sailing, using us as a buoy, going around us. We had to get rescued," he said.
