I am not an expert.

The water in the muffler has already done it's job and has left the engine, so there should be no real problem there.
Pumping exhaust water into the bilge might be a problem.

To fix it may be as simple as fiberglass repair, or replacement.

I would look at what caused the crack. Did it freeze? If so, investigate the rest of the cooling water system and engine block.

After a second look, it seems likely someone stepped on it.

Cheers!
