Post Tank resealing

My name is Dave and this is the first time I have ever used a forum. I have a 240 Gallon tank and after coming home from a vacation found the top center glass support had fallen into the tank and the side had bowed. No leaking had taken place. The tank is now being cleaned and on the silicone corners joints we are removing of silicone. Getting ready reseal. I have no experience in doing this and I am looking for good sound advice..thank you

Welcome to AA.
IMO, the best advice is to have a pro fix the tank. I admire your courage, but with a broken center brace and bowed glass, it's likely specialized clamps and other tools will be needed.
I'd contact local glass companies, or mom and pop aquarium shops for estimates. A 240 gal. Is a fantasy tank for most of us, don't let it become a nightmare.
My work buddy's resealed 180 gal. Failed, flooding his house with salt water. Several thousand
dollar loss in fish and coral. Not good.
Good luck with your project.
