Cleaning Diesel Fuel Tank

I bought a boat with a Universal 5411 diesel engine. The fuel is old. Looking for the best way to clean out the fuel tank. Looks like it would be difficult to remove the tank.
Thanks

I coverted to electric propulsion back in 2008 so I had no need for diesel on board. This is how I drained the tank it was easy and not messy. It might be helpful to you:
