getting smoker-smell out

Here's another boat that I'm considering, a Cascade 36 (1975, hull 67):

36 Cascade Sailboat

It looks like a darn good deal to me, and was just reduced from 19k a few days ago. I'll go across and look at it next weekend, if it's still around. Any opinions on whether it's a good deal or a bad deal?

Also, the current owner lived on it, and is a smoker. How hard would it be to get the smoke smell out? I'm assuming I'd more or less have to replace all the upholstery and fabric. Has anyone here tried to take over a smoker-boat before?

My Ericson 35 had a diesel smell from a leak. I had to clean all upholstery and strip/varnish all woodwork. The woodwork was not for the feint of heart. The '85 35-3 has A LOT of wood.

Renting (or buying) an ozone generator can be quite effective. Give that a try before you strip the entire boat. You should not occupy the space while it's working.. strong odors like smoke might take a 2 or 3 day session, or if you buy one occasional followups too...
