This doesn't directly answer your question, but may be helpful.

Although I have used the aerodyne as a rowing substitute in the past, I don't feel it simulates rowing to an adequate degree. Although the arms and legs are both being worked, the lack of hip extension/core work reduces its metabolic impact, IMO. I'm pretty sure you have a 45# bar lying around. Doing high pulls with that would probably be a closer approximation of rowing.

With regards to distance - I've found that taking a run distance and multiplying by 1.5 for the aerodyne is a pretty close approximation of the time and effort involved for the run for me. Not sure if this helps you with a rowing to aerodyne conversion, however.

For what it's worth,
