if there is no visual damage or ungainly looking bends in the rudders...not being perfectly parallel may be a factory set.
If nothing has been said and your sea trial seemed satisfactory....you might never see any difference playing around with a few degrees of angle.
If your boat runs above 20 knots all day long...then like Ski said...there are ways to set them for optimum performance...but on most boats it's hardly noticeable.
I ran an assistance towing boat where the rudder was bent in all kinds of configurations...including forward to the point where the prop nuts chewed an inch square out of the leading edge.
While slightly noticeable with all these bends, surprising how well the boat performed.
Actually reverse suffered the most from a bent prop...maybe the same for you...notice anything?
