raw water pump leak on Yanmar 3Gm30F

hello all, I'm new to this forum and seen many posts about my engine so I'm hoping someone here can help me... a few weeks ago I noticed water in the engine bilge and found the source to be a drip from the raw water pump. there is some corrosion on the screw there so its not new but seem to be getting bigger....

I got a quote to get a new raw water pump for $400 and change and find that steep. Anyone have an opinion if this is something that shold be rebuilt, left along or just flat out replaced. I like the last and keep the old as spare as that seems the safest and I'm close to doing it but I tohght a check here would be woth it...

any comments appreciated !
