In the sentence below, what does "floats your boat" mean?
Anyway, if that sort of thing floats your boat, there is more information at the Web site of the event's local host
Just to amplify on Heidita's answer...
"Whatever floats your boat" is often used as a comment when a person finds another person's interest or preference rather strange.
For example, you're having breakfast with someone and they proceed to pour ketchup on their pancakes. Your stomach is turning as you ask, "What the heck are you doing?"
"Oh, I love ketchup on pancakes!" they respond.
You shrug and say, "Well, whatever floats your boat."
