removing orig water tank

I am interested in removing/replacing my exisiting water tank. I have a Pearson 30 with the original water tank that is pretty slimy with a lot of mildew growing on the inside. The tank is in the V-berth and difficult to get out, and there is no inspection port to take a good look and clean it out. I believe the best way is to cut it out and replace it with something smaller, but even that seems to be a challenge. Has anyone any experience with cutting up plastic tanks? How sturdy are they, what did you use--a jigsaw, reciprocating saw? Am I nuts for even taking this approach?
