Point to Polygon Conversion, Points out of Order

I have created a shapefile containing 67,000 points that outline the banks of a river, I made this in order to create a TIN because each one of these points represents depths of 0 and along with other depth recording creates a rough bathymetric map. Now that I have created the TIN, I wanted to convert the point shapefile into a polygon, to do so I used the point to polygon tool in ET Geowizards. Unfortunately before making the points I did not realize that ET Geowizards connects the points to make the polygon in the order they were created, and I went back and forth in different areas while making the points. This has resulted in a polygon that is broken up and connected to different parts instead of representing the river. Is there anyway to re order or fix the polygon without having to manually recreate all 67,000 points in order again? I have attached pictures to hopefully clarify what my issue is, I can explain in further detail if you guys have any questions.

 

Thanks!
