I am trying to translate the following sentence:
Diu in undis errabant et multos labores subierunt.
I am able to translate the first part as:
For a long time the ship was wandering in the waves
But I am stuck on the second part. The definitions given are:
- labor, laboris — effort, exertion, labour, work task, hardship, suffering, distress
- subeo [mainly in this context] — go under
I could attempt to translate this as 'and many efforts went under' but that does not fit in with the context.
How do I translate "multos labores subierunt"?
