38' Vagabond Fuel Tank Replacment

Does any one know where the fuel tanks are, and has anyone replaced them on a 38 ft Westwind Vagabond 1985

The fuel tank located under the starboard quarter berth, aft of the batteries. It's a 50 gallon ss tank and will fit through the companion way. However, it will not be easy to remove it.
I have an 86 Westwind 38. I had all the fuel pumped out and pressure tested the tank. Fortunately, it's in good shape.

If you have questions regarding this boat's attributes, feel free to ask.
