Question 1972 Pearson 390 Holding Tank

I have to replace the ancient metal holding tank. I'm not sure how to get it out. It's difficult to get exact dimensions because of how it's installed. Also, I don't know if it's too heavy yet to lift out by hand. I'm hoping that anyone with experience has some suggestions. thanks, Jim

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Definitely had to have them in the Great Lakes. It was retrofitted with a forward and aft holding tank in 1975 and the through hulls were sealed. I bought it in 1985.
