Leaking thermostat housing

Hey guys i just got bak from a lil holiday, anyway went out to check the vl and the radiator dry..... I filled it up and noticed it was slowly dripping out of thethermostat housing so ive pulled it off and on a few times but it continues to slowly drip out.. Do you think it could be the housing?? I dont think its warped but im getting sick of it!!
Any help bros?

It's common for the radiator hose outlets to rust where the hose fits onto them, check its not coming from there.

If it's leaking where it sits against the block, clean it up with some fine sandpaper and chuck a new gasket on it
