The bow above the deck appears it waa torn off durring the salvage operation.
Notice that where the port bow gate used to be there is little damge. I suspect that break in bow on that side let that side flex and tear easily along the deck line when they were pulling it, pobably by the winch. It gave way along the deck line on that side, tore the winch off and tore the bow off above the deck on the starbord side as well.
