Standard Floor Patch Question

This season I put the first hole in an old Avon standard floor this season. It was about an inch tear. I patched the hole on the outside and it turned out very well. The inside of the floor still shows where the hole was. Should I be worried about sand and such getting into it from the inside of the boat even though it is patched on the outside? Has anyone ever patched both sides of a hole (inside of the floor as well) to keep it clean? Any downside in doing this? Thanks in advance.

Meh, either way. I'd probably leave it, if only because I don't like rolling boats. If you're concerned about it, you'll probably feel better about it if you patch the inside when you have a minute. And have a beer before hand (so you have a can to mix glue in). And another during the patching (just 'cause).

Thanks for the advice. I patched it today and it looks great. I feel better about it and appreciate the help. Happy paddling.
