Question Toe In /toe Out ?????

Need some info regarding the toe in / toe out setting for the drives on the boat. Called Fountain today but missed the person I needed to talk to about this. Would like to check before launching.

1999 35 Fountain Lightning
Standard Bravos at regular factory X dimension
Props are turning in

Would like to know in or out, and how much. Thanks in advance !
