I think I would try making clearance behind the steel and put a 316 backing
piece behind the crack, and weld the top piece to the backing piece, to create
a double lap weld, likely in 3 passes with plenty of time for cooling to minimize
warping.

Then find the moron who put the seam there in the first place and bitch slap
him.
