The sailors hated the Pilgrims. And the Pilgrims didn't like the sailors.
The sailors made fun of the Pilgrims who got seasick. They called them "glib-gabbety puke stockings." One sailor said he wanted to throw half the Pilgrims into the sea.
The sailors hated the Pilgrims' prayers and holy songs. The Pilgrims didn't like the sailors' bad language.
But at the end of the voyage, the sailors had to admit that the Pilgrims had plenty of courage.
And the Pilgrims were thankful that the sailors got them safely to the New World.
