Nice times Micah, I've updated the table and added a few extra categories.

What kind of distance are you most interested in? All the long distance are pretty recent, then a 2k PB pops up :)

As far as being interested in distances, I'm really not. Erging is only a means to an end- winning on the water. I still row competitively and compete in 1k, 2k, and head races year-round. The distance pieces came as part of usual workouts, and the marathon was actually by a dare during a row-a-thon. I feel that if I keep my training at its current pace, I might be able to pull a 6:30 2k at the next indoor rowing event.

My hotel gym is pretty pathetic just an all in one machine BUT has a rowing machine.

As I will probably only do this once, make myself feel sick and then decide I don't like rowing.

For the 500m what tactic should I use, max resistance and then just hammer it out or try get lots of strokes in?

I would strongly advice against setting the rowing machine at maximum resistance ever. Especially when doing a 500 meter test. The risk of injury of the lower back is to big. I would instead suggest a drag factor around 135 (usually around resistance 5-6) for this type of test. Yes you are strong person, but the impact that maximum resistance on the erg pose is not nice on anyone's lower back. Rower's never row on maximum resistance, not even the 2 meter and 110 kg guys.

Listen to Ida if you are smart, listen to me if you are stupid. I always used max resistance before.

Ida: Isn't it a bit like doing maxium lifts? The technique is seldom very good then either.

Bad technique is one thing. Doing stupid stuff and risking injury is another. When doing 500 meter test you always end up with the former is more or less inevitable, as you get so insanely tired towards the end. But you should always try to avoid the latter if possible. Regardless of technique. :)

Turns out on the gyms rowing machine resistance was not an issue, even on the top resistance it felt easy.
First attempt I set the resistance to 8 and was a DNF did 100m in 60 seconds! Upped the resistance to 10 and got this 2:57.

Will need to find a concept2 and do this properly.

definitely, 2:57 doesn't sound right. either you're doing it very wrong or that machine is shit. I row faster than that during recovery when I do intervals on a rowing machine, and I'm not a strong rower at all.
