On 10-11 December 1924, Marindin and the Coast and Geodetic survey launch USC&GS Mitchell aided a United States Marine Corps 50-foot (15.25-meter) motor sailer that had gone aground by pulling it off the rocks and towing it to the U.S. Marine Corps boathouse at St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands. On 28 June 1922, she joined the Coast and Geodetic Survey survey ship USC&GS Ranger in searching for survivors of the schooner Rose Standish, which had burned off Morro Point Light, Puerto Rico, although none were found. From 4 to 12 September 1935, she and the Coast and Geodetic Survey launch USC&GS Elsie III helped in relief efforts in the Florida Keys following the passage of the violent 1935 Labor Day hurricane.
Marindin was retired from Coast and Geodetic Survey service in 1944.
