How old is too old

New to the forum, but have read many great responsed and decided to jump in. I am looking for a 25 to 30 footer and have a found a great C&C 27. I have spoken to a marine surveyor who will do the inspection. However, even if the survey turns out OK, I am still nervous about buying a 40 year old boat. Are my concerns warranted or is an old boat that has been taken care of just as good as a newer one. Where I am at ( Lake Superior) the slip is reasonable so I will have a littel extra budget for annual maintainence.
Thanks Carl
