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?

NYC and Miami

There are such places in NYC and Miami. The names escape me at the momnet. The ones I am thinking of are not directly related to disaster boats but more a funtions of many boats in a small area over time.

Sea Chest in Riviera Beach Florida, speak to Nancy (owner/operator). I live in Miami but rather go to them than Sailorman, thoss guys are pain rude and priced way too high. If you wanna cry, look into he 300 plus vessels that are being scrapped (nothing can be removed) in the keys. My brother told me of the twenty or so boat that were lined up for crushing, and said that they had winches, windlasses, mast, rigging, etc. in good to very good condition. ecently two of the salvage operators were arrested for taking a few parts.. talk about a waste.
