In the dim, dark ages of the 1970s there was a method published that supposedly would always work. Might give you a starting point.
Locate the center of the stab and then raise each tip by 35° keeping the same 'look down' length. This will give you the same stab area and incidentally a workable fin/rudder height. The attached diagram shows what I'm talking about, the dotted vertical line is the theoretical fin and rudder.
