You don't see this type of adventure story often from Ogden Whitney. It's from a short-lived ACG title, Operation Peril. This episode is from #11, July 1952. Normally I'm not into stories about seafarers, but I like Whitney, and I love the names Typhoon and Hammerhead.
I also like that the Hollywood-styled South Sea Island gal fights off a rape-minded sailor, calling him, "You grinning vermin!" That'd soften my belaying pin, matey. Arrrrrrr.
