Briggs and Stratton 4stroke 5hp Outboard leaking oil

My old B&S 4strok 5hp outboard - which I've just got an have not yet used - seems to be leaking small amounts of oil down the leg continually. Comes from the side where the petrol tap is.

Could this be something fixable or is it more likely to be a cracked sump or such?

To answer that question you need to identify exactly where the leak is. If it's a crack it can probably be repaired, however its more likely that a gasket has failed on the old girl.
