61 Tradewind blackwater tank removal

I've removed the entire interior of my tradewind in prep for the full monty. Only thing left is the back water tank. Toilet is off any advice/suggestions on removing it, short of busting it out. Everything else has been extremely straight forward. Hate to start smashing things now. I'm trying to hustle to take advantage of this uncommon New England weather.

Assuming it is empty, should be easily removed. Does it sit above the floor or below?

Biggest challenge might be removing the plumbing below the tank so you can lift it out. On my '59 the pipe nipple screwed into the bottom flange was froze in solid.
