repairing the towing eye

Howdy Gang,
I've got the mighty Rubber Ducky in our shop and have pulled the motor and console and tubes off-
The fibre glass hull is hanging stern up from the overhead track.

The original stainless steel towing eye snapped off and I drilled out the hull to put a larger heavy duty eye. Doing so I had a leak around the new eye bolt-

My plan is to repair the hull where the towing eye goes thru. I'm thinking of pouring the resin mix in then inserting the new bolt . With the stern up making the resin to stay near the hole.

Any thoughts on how to clean the inside of the hull?- There might be oil or dirt around the hole. I'm thinking of some acetone sloshed around.

Any ideas?
thanks from the frozen north
