I'd argue that the cable rows are not a good substitute at any possible weight - rowing isn't used as a strength element, but as a way to get a huge amount of muscle working repetitively for metabolic tax rather than stamina or strength. The cable row is limited to the upper body portion of the movement, which, in rowing, is comparitively minor in terms of the total power of a single pull. In other words, it has a very minor metabolic demand and therefore is not a good substitution. Stick with SDHP.
