I also used this opportunity to install a ring on the bow. This will be used for towing the tender so I wanted it to be sturdy. I was also impatient on a Sunday and didn't have access to a real piece of hardware. I used an old shackle and epoxied it in place. Seems to work well.
Once everything was cleaned up reasonably well I finished the interior with a coat of oil based primer and oil based boat paint.
I wanted to finish the interior first so that I wouldn't scrape the bottom paint later on in the process.
Once everything dried I flipped the boat over for exterior finishing.
