Sources for salvaged parts

I am kind of curious about what happens to boats that are completely destroyed by hurricanes. I know that many entire boats go on the auction block by insurers, but what happens to all the parts and rigging of boats that are a total loss?

Are there companies that specialize in stripping deck fittings, ports, winches, windlasses, etc, from storm damaged boats and sell them in an aftermarket or 'gray' market?
