Scrapping started but in 1943 it was decided to use the hull as an ammunition store for the recapture of Guam from the Japanese. In 1944, she was loaded with explosives (mainly for airfield construction) and towed to Guam where she was moored for the duration. In a typhoon in the 1950s she broke loose and was found drifting 500 miles away. She was recovered to Guam and thought was given to preservation. Some parts have been preserved but the hull was scrapped in Japan in 1956.
