2 rudder toe in adjust

Hi all,

Can anyone give us a hint on what toe in angles should we use on a 2 rudder 26ft sailboat?
Nothing on the owner's manual, unfortunately...

Thanks in advance.

Basic set-up should point both rudders at the "pivot" point when the steering is straight ahead. In other words, point both rudders at the leading edge of the keel.
