Assigned to the 1st Naval District, Boston, Ozette provided harbor services there until 1949, when she was re-assigned, to the Advanced Bases, Atlantic, an area of operation that kept her busy until 1958 when she returned to Boston. Redesignated YTM–541 in February 1962, she continues to operate at Boston into 1970.
