It sounds like you have answered your own question. If you can remove the rudder, you could soak the cracked edge in penetrating epoxy. Penetrating epoxy displaces any water that may/may not be present. I agree that "doing nothing" would be the best bet given your time constraints.

As Bruce called it I think you answered your own question. The fact that it's the trailing edge makes the decision easier. No structural, no problem :)
The only consideration I would have is if the cracks lined up with the rods running perpendicular through the rudder.
