definitely...... wondered about all the turning but that's when you call in those ski tokens. you wanna go skiin'..... you gotta spin my tank.
actually the empty tank is pretty light but it is 48" long so i would need to make a little see-saw jig maybe to put it over and rock it back and forth. but that definitely would be the hardest aspect of the whole process i would think. but it is good to know it has lasted the test of time for you so far.

It lasted 30 years from new.
I would just clean it and call it good for another 30.
I do not really like fuel tank coatings. Bad Kreem experience.

You can always have a tank custom made. My son and I restored an 88 boat with aluminum tank. It had several pin holes due to corosion, kinda like Swiss cheese. Had exact duplicate made out of stainless, and yes it was expensive, but no more corosion worries.
