According to The National Association of Fleet Tug Sailors (NAFTS.com) The YT-153, a harbor tug working right at the entrance of Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, is currently in civilian service as the tug "Hawk".  There are color photos on the site, which also show a builders plate confirming a 1940 Pearl Harbor building date.
No details as to where this tug is in service.

Its operated by Specialty Diving Services Inc. of Rhode Island.

So the current total of confirmed surviving vessels afloat that were at/near Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 is now five: WPG-37 Taney, YT-142 Nokomis, YT-146 Hoga, YT-153 (No Name) and Open Ligher YC-699.

In addition WSC-152 Tiger is said to still exist. I also see YT-152 was given to Viet Nam in 1955. So who knows?

Since the topic of YT-153 and her sighting of Midget B in the Main Channel is also discussed elsewhere I have provided this internal link to that area:

Ken's link appears to be a little wonky (We have some links not working currently) so here is the correct link for now.
