We painted the interior with topside white. It is glaringly white. We have doubts about this choice, but we'll go with it for a while and see if it doesn't fade with time. (Does white fade? Actually, I think it does with oxidation.)The Captain found an idea for a wheel on the back of a dinghy in Good Old Boat. We are attempting to add this feature. It still requires some work with fiberglass resin to make it seamless with the original keel. In hindsight, making a resin mold would have been better than shaping it in place. We'll post our final results soon!
