Casing crack

I've just got a used parsun 9.8 and for peace of mind I've completely stripped and cleaned the whole fuel system.
When re installing the pump I noticed a crack on the casing and it extends over a rib.
Obviously where the casing meets the mid section it is secured with a number of bolts.
Just wondering if I should just leave it, put some sort of sealant to stop water ingress, put a metal strap around the outside to strengthen it or both? I know the strap Idea would be a bit unsightly.
It's obviously been dropped or suffered a bump from the previous owner.

I'm not sure I would bother doing anything with it other than seal it up from the inside just to stop any salt spray from getting in. If your bothered I wouldn't have thought a new casing would be much money to replace.

Great engine by the way

Hi Tommy. If it was mine I would definitely want to either repair or replace it.
Not sure if a fibre glass patch on the in side would work, but it's worth a try, and maybe some black epoxy resin in the crack on the outside?
