Rust on bottom of Peerless boiler, 40 years old

There is a spot of rust maybe 5 inches by 3 inches on the bottom. The repair person said the boiler is on its way out. I'd like to know how much time I might have to get a new one. Have a photo.

    You can post the photo here. There is an "attach image" button on top of the text area when you edit your discussion or post a new comment.

    Is this rust spot dripping? Is it growing? How long are you wanting to push it? I would think you'd be OK for the rest of this winter. Were you hoping for more?

    Maybe on it's way out , maybe not.

    Do you run the boiler for domestic hot water?
