I think nl235 hit the nail on the head. I have heard far too many horror stories about the task of replacing a tank buried under all sorts of structure, For many years I tried to get ABYC to change the wording of their standard on this to make it easier to get at and replace a tank, without success. The tank is relatively cheap, it's the cost of removing decks and superstructure and then having to replace them that is daunting. In many cases the simplest and cheapest solution is cut a hole in the hull and take the tank out through the hole. But then you have to repair the hole in the hull.

Yes, I have heard people talk about "can I fix my tank?" but I think their real issue is the daunting mess of fixing the boat after replacing the tank.
