Edit: The Helldiver is not a bi-plane.

How about the Gladiator!

If you already have Il2/FB/AEP then you have a Gladiator.

Some new paint and you have a SeaGladiator, minus the hook and liferaft.

"Helldiver" is a funny name, given that it's been applied to three distinct Curtiss planes:

F8C Helldiver: Entered carrier service in 1930. Designated O2C in Marine service. All relegated to reserve by 1934, completely withdrawn by beginning of Pacific war.

SBC Helldiver: Entered carrier service in 1937. In service with VB-8, VS-8, and VMO-151 at beginning of Pacific war. Saw action in early battles.

SB2C Helldiver: Entered carrier service in 1943. The most extensively built US Navy dive-bomber.

The Glad can fly so slow that I doubt you will need a tail hook!

What bipes would you expect? There really are no biplane pacific fighters. F3F would be fun, but it didn't see combat. Swordfish and Albacore never got past the Indian Ocean. Gladiators and I-153 served in China. Many cruiser floatplanes were bipes, and F1M Pete served as a makeshift fighter occasionally. Curtiss Seagull on the allied side.
Quiz: What biplane was in service with the RN and the BPF up to the last day of the pacific war?

Though not fighters, the "alf," "dave," and "pete" floatplanes were bipes. As was the US J2F "duck."

Waldo, correct, that's the one I was thinking of, but there is another, the Sea Otter. I had to look it up in William Green's Flying Boats, I don't think I've opened that book in 20 years. Might be fun to have one in PF to rescue all those dinghy-bound aircrew. For the cruiser floatplanes, if we eventually get Jake and Kingfisher that ought to be enough. How about a sub-launchable Glen? We could bomb California. (Note to NSA, this is not a genuine suggestion).

Of course you could land a squadron of hookless Hurricanes on Glorious in RL, also a Spitfire V on
Wasp(?).
