48-13704 port side?
48-13705 starboard side?

Cheers

In a standard twin-screw installation the tops of the propellers should turn outboard. Thus, viewing forward from the stern, the port prop turns counterclockwise and the starboard prop turns clockwise. The port prop is a left-hand screw and the starboard prop is a right-hand screw.

Mark,
If you have the TRS drives, look at the ends of the prop shafts. The rotation of the drive is stamped on the end of the shaft - L or R. Bill

PS In the case of my 36' Cigarette, I am turning them inwards for a little more speed. You can move the drives from one side to the other to change from inward to outward rotations. Obviously, the correct rotation props stay on the same drives.
