I am lot happier if I can leave it till winter. It lives outside so I'll need to find it a waterproof home for winter now.

Theres some top fellas on here with better advice on the finery of repairs, all I know is, Ive had plenty RIBS with worse cracks, that have come to nothing. As a rule though, its a wood base construction, so keeping water out of the internal structure is important, as it makes the wood expand, which wont do anything any good, that was why I suggested letting it dry over winter before repairing , with a re-coat for example.
You wont change any stress points by a repair superficially, ultimately the same will happen again, IMHO.
