Splits in stainless steel water tanks

Has anybody tried to seal stainless tanks inside with some kind of coating?
The tank is 25 years old, about 250 liters and is wide and flat in shape. The corners have split in several places. It is welded in under the floor framing in a steel yacht so inaccessible for welding. What about cutting the top out, taking out the baffles etc and putting in a flexible tank? Any other suggestions?
