Bow and stern Hello Matt

Using the Northwind for example. If the stern had the same slope and shape as the bow how much difference would it make performance wise.
I have a fellow here that is wanting to do some races and is a rower , thats great but going through swift water and rapids backwards might get a little wild.
We were thinking of swapping ends of the boat as you went into the rapids and going through them like a guide skiff they use trout fishing, then in the long deep water swap to conventional style rowing for the extra speed and power.
