I wouldn't be. Sitting backwards on the back edge of the bow seat is ok as an improvisation, but the more intensively you use the boat, the more important it is that you are firmly positioned and close to the center of the boat. See Big Spencer's post below. If sitting near the center, one's paddle reaches closer to the bow and the canoe needs less correction.
