Do I have to grind for the bow as equipment?

Clearly, this is a ship that deserves either a heal or enhanced DCP.

...or faster-than-normal reverse speed so she can advance on the enemy in a historically-accurate manner.

that was the one where they took parts of 2 DDs that hit mines and made a new DD out of them, right?

Not only that; one of the DDs had a beam 3 or 4 inches wider than the other, but they still made it work. Zubian went on to confuse German intelligence, and have a decent career the rest of the war.
