Resolute was based at Central District Salvage Station, Stapleton, Staten Island, N.Y., throughout her Navy career. She performed local towing duty, took part in several salvage operations, and assisted in patrolling the local anchorages into 1919. Decommissioned 15 May 1919, Resolute was sold to her former owner the same day.
During early 1942 Resolute again served the Navy, operating for several months under a charter to perform salvage work on the east coast. Resolute remained in mercantile service until scrapped in 1955.
