Nice boat and well done, congratulations! I also have a daysailer version of Marlin, got her two years ago from a boatyard in NYC in a state of total neglect and am slowly bringing her back to life, photo below.

I'd strongly recommend painting over the cabin sides as the exposed resin gets damaged from all the UV radiation which over time affects structural integrity. Back in the 60's they didn't know much about it so they left it unpainted, these days even CCSB paints the sides over when they restore a Marlin.
