Question Drain and clean fuel tank

I have a Bayliner which has been sitting for about three years. I would like to know the best way to drain and clean the fuel tank?

Best way I know of is to remove the tank. But that may not be needed. Pull up the floor boards and then remove the tank but only do so if absolutely needed. The tank can be drained and or flushed without removal in many cases. This is or can be a hazardous job for anyone not knowledgeable with what they are doing. Even the slightest amount of fuel vapors can be highly explosive under the right conditions. Grounding is required when doing some tasks like these. Static electrical charges can create a spark hot enough to ignite fuel vapors. Use extreme cautions!
