Removing Tanks

I own a 41' Jeanneau Sun Legend 1988 and wish to take both the diesel and fresh water tanks out for cleaning and changing leaking copper pipes. Is there a way to do this task without having to cut the furniture and nav. station??

That is a question related to your specific boat. On my boat I need to take some of the furniture apart. If the Jeneaus were built with modules then it may be that you have to cut things apart to get the tanks out.

Sure, you could just cut open the hull under the tanks
