Thank you so much, any idea if the way to remove the tank if I have to go that way is to cut the floor to get the main tank out

Just found out through a checkmate dealer who has retired, there was a problem with the tanks rotting and getting pin holes. Great Now I have to remove my tank and replace it. Do I need to cut the floor and get the tank out that way? This will be a winter project, but I need a plan on how I am going to start this project. Where can I get the information to follow how to do this

I replaced my tank when I redid the stringers. The tank had severe pitting but wasn’t leaking yet. Whatever you do, do not foam the tank back in. I had SpeedyTanks make me a new one. They have pretty good installation instructions for securing the tank.
Either way the floor needs to come out.

Thank you very much for the information, where is speedy tank located? I am in Pa. and the boat is at Deep Creek Lake Md. So I guess I will cut the floor along the stringers the length of the tank and lift it out. Are there any good places to go to get guidance for this job?
