I guess a boat that old is likely due for a bunch of maintenance?
I can speak only for mine, and it sails great.

As far as whether it's due for maintenance, that depends entirely on how much maintenance the prior owner has done. Just because it's 42 years old doesn't mean it's in need of maintenance, if the prior owner has taken excellent care of it.
