Default Leaking fuel tank

Hi all,
My 97 2300sc has a leaking fuel tank.
I did a quick search but didnít find anything pertaining to my particular model.
The engine is out, and I was wondering if anyone has done this job before. Any tips tricks advice greatly appreciated.

What material is the deck made of; plywood or fiberglass? Either way you need to cut out a panel slightly larger than the fuel tank to have room to access the hold downs.

The deck is fiberglass with a plywood storage compartment underneath. I was hoping tank would come out into engine bay with a little creative cutting. There doesn’t seem to be any holdowns as I con move tank in its enclosure. The supports and bulkhead to the rear are all rotted

I never heard of a tank not having hold downs. Even so the tank may be to long to slide back and lift over the engine mount pads on the stringers.
