Wraped Port saddle images

Attached are photos of where the port saddle/ stern bracket wraped. If you were looking from the stern to the Bow, The saddle warped with an anti clockwise twist near the tilt tube. These images are taken from the top looking down onto the saddle

TSM is it possible that the tilt tube has sheared (as it looks like it in the picture) and that this allowed the engine to twist snapping the bracket ?

Hi Chris

The tilt tube is fine. I pulled it yesterday to check if it was wraped/ twisted. I have the tilt tube pulled back into the housing to laoow for an alignment check.
