What transmission is in your boat? If it is a velvet drive the reverse clutches are not the same as the forward. The reverse clutch pack has far fewer friction disc and I'm sure its not designed for high RPM use.

Sounds like a recipe for disaster! Seems like there would be a big chance of backing over someone if you happen to forget.
