Fleet I'll float round (8)


I believe the answer is:


'fleet' is the definition.
(I know that flotilla is a type of fleet)

'i'll float round' is the wordplay.
'round' is an anagram indicator.
'illfloat' with letters rearranged gives 'FLOTILLA'.

(Other definitions for flotilla that I've seen before include "many boats" , "A lot of craft" , "Fleet of small craft" , "Fleet of small warships" , "Fleet of small ships" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
