In May 1944, a special sonar apparatus was installed and tested. Her old wooden hull, however, continued to deteriorate. The Navy ultimately decided that repairing her to a seaworthy condition would entail an unacceptable expense. By March of 1945 the Navy recommended that Boone be decommissioned and disposed of.
She was decommissioned 6 June 1945 and transferred for disposal to the War Shipping Administration on 8 March 1946.
