If you set up bow heavy, the bow will plow deeper as the bow paddler drives forward with each stroke. Set up a little bow light to compensate.
Bow heavy will not help the situation either if you're climbing waves and trying to move up on other canoes. Bow paddler can adjust forward once the hull has climbed the wave and is now trying to surf out in front of it.
