Question Replacing 27 gallon fuel tank on 1973 Reinell 23ft Cabin Cruiser

We are going to buy a 1973 Reinell 23ft Cabin Cruiser this weekend. It does have a problem though. The fuel tank has a leak and rust. He says it needs to be repaired or replaced. We were looking into replacing it, but are unsure on the steps to take and the cost. First question is, what amount of funds are we looking at with us doing it verses a boat place doing it for us. This is our first boat and we don't know much about the fuel tank, so we are a bit nervous. We were told it's under the deck and we would have to tear up the deck to do it. Is this safe? Does it hurt the strength of the boat? Any suggestions for us before we purchase the boat?

Thank you so much,
Sheila
