So, I finally got around to getting a video of my Concept 3 Rower(c) in action.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_my4jTR-NmM

Prices start at $1,000,000, with installment plans of $500 per month.

I love it! I'd take a couple of them at that price except I just snagged a model D on Craigslist for $600.

If only I had seen your marvelous system in action before I was connived out of my hard earned cash. Live and learn I guess...

Can you row faster than in the video or does that make the weights start to bounce?

Awesome!

What is the drag factor? Can I get it with a PMVII?

You just put wet sand on the ground under the wheels. That's a drag factor of about 7, I think. In fact, that would be a big drag -- so make it a 10.
Nice work, Neal. I'd take two on the installment plan but I'm saving for a trip to HQ for a seminar. Maybe after that, though.
