Mast Rake Angle

Hi, does anyone know how to determine what is the proper rake angle for masts in a ketch. I recently bought an Island Trader ketch that had the wooden masts replaced with aluminum in 1997, however they are set up with a very noticable rake aft. Is there a rule of thumb for this? The masts are stepped on deck. Thanks in advance.
