Right you most certainly are... I was, as we all often do, thinking more specifically of our boat. Only 22 gallons, tank is easy to get to and remove. Had it priced out 3 years ago when we got the boat as we thought there might be an issue. We've got a great local shop in a competitive market that includes a lot of commercial marine so it's more reasonable than a lot of places. Speaking of PITA tankage to replace, the worst I've ever seen was helping a friend remove a fuel tank from a Norseman 447... It was a living hell and no way to get it out without removing much of the teak around the companionway hatch. I can't imagine that that one cost the owner less than 5-6k.
