They floated each other’s boats.

A New York Navyman and an NYU student were happy to oblige The Post’s request to recreate the famed 1945 V-J Day photo from Times Square, during a Fleet Week bash.

Brandon O’Connell, a sailor stationed at Chambers Street, showed up ready to mingle at the Fleet Week Open Bar Singles Party Friday night to meet “somebody that would like to have fun.”

Early on in the evening, the Rochester native was hitting it off with Evangeline Lim, a master’s student at NYU, who told The Post he was “nice and cute.”

The pair had locked eyes in Times Square earlier that day, and sparks flew, but they hadn’t spoken.

“I remember her face,” O’Connell said.

“And I remember him because he was the only one in white,” added Lim, a native of Singapore.

The famed photo shows a Navyman spontaneously kissing a dental assistant as news broke that World War II had ended.

After the lip lock photo session, they beamed while recalling their first kiss.

“I loved it,” said O’Connell, with a twinkle in his eye.

“It was nice,” Lin replied, smiling.

The pair met at the Fleet Week Open Bar Singles Party — where women from all over the world flocked to meet American sailors.

Only women were able to purchase tickets to the event at The Dean on West 39th Street. It was advertised as “an evening mixing, mingling, drinking endless libations, and dancing with the hottest sailors.”

Jennifer Douglass, a performing arts facilitator from Scotland, attended during her week-long vacation in New York.

“I will move to America and have their babies,” she said. “I’m single and I fancy sailors. They’re fit and I love crisp white uniforms.”

Douglass, 35, had never met a sailor before, and said they lived up to her high expectations.

“They’re lovely, very polite, very clean and very friendly and they’re fun,” she gushed.

Nathan Pallares, who hails from California and has been in the US Navy for a year, saw an ad for the party, and decided to give it a whirl.

“I saw the little card and was like, ‘Let’s do it,'” he said.

Meeting someone from New York wouldn’t be a problem.

“Right now, I’m stationed in D.C.,” he said.

It was his first time in the Big Apple, and he was happy with the diverse crowd of women.

“A lot of different countries and a lot of different people,” he said.

Amara Majeed of Pakistan dreamed of attending a Fleet Week event ever since she watched “Sex and the City.”

“Because of Carrie Bradshaw, she talked about Fleet Week,” she explained. “And this is my first year in New York, so I looked up, ‘Where do sailors go?'”
