You must look at the ship as a whole. A ship that is nearly 40 years old IS old. Nuke, or no nuke, steam pipes get rusty, things wear out, equipment becomes outdated.

And they get replaced. Every inch of steam plant piping has been replaced more than once, every pump, valve, turbine, cooler etc. has been rebuilt, replaced overhauled UMPTEEN times.
