.....Speaking of PITA tankage to replace, ..
A friend had steel tanks in an older CHB Trawler... of course after 20 years they were shot. He had to go in with a zip cutter and literally cut them to pieces.
The only way the new tanks would go back in was if they were 30% smaller - and the engine (6Cyl Ford Lehman) had to come out first!
