Curiously, the particular of Zebedee being left alone with his servants on the boat is not found in Marcion. I wonder even if the name itself Zebedee is found in Marcion.
But that particular was invented by Mark against Marcion, since it introduces a distinction between fishers (=apostles) and shipmasters (=Marcion):
the fishers follow Jesus, while the shipmaster their father (Marcion) doesn't follow Jesus.
But this is an implicit recognition that Marcion was already known by Mark as a shipmaster, too.
Discussion about the New Testament, apocrypha, gnostics, church fathers, Christian origins, historical Jesus or otherwise, etc.
