“Float your boat”

When someone says something and you respond by saying, ‘Whatever floats your boat’, what you mean is, ‘Whatever pleases you’.”  “In other words, you are telling the person, ‘I’ll do whatever makes you happy’.”

This is just one of the meanings of the expression.

Example:

“Which movie do you want to go to?” 

“Whatever floats your boat.”
