Another "Prime Time" question

How do I "finish" the inside of the hull, as shown in the photo's? It's the lighter tan area. The whole inside doesn't need work, just the surfaces that show above the superstructure.

Presently it is kinda rough, it has the fiberglass (?) mat showing, and doesn't look very nice.

Should I sand it to smooth it out? - but that will make the hull thinner. Or try and fill to get it nicer looking, or?

I would appreciate any help & advice you can offer.

THANKS, Dave

I like using just a coat of flat or satin finish gray for inside the hull on my boats. The flatter the finish, the less obvious things like fiberglass fabric etc become, IMO.

If not worries about the look, prime and paint. Want a finished look, use Evercoat filler, sand then prime/paint.
