Ah you guys are very observant! hah Yeah I agree with you rjmaiorano... 5 would be the max in a season. I remember a coach i had last year saying they were something that should be done rarely, but done well. Those words have stuck with me since. bach, I don't think that's a good idea. Your coaches know best, even when you think they don't. Doing sneaky training on your own will not necessarily improve your performance. If anything, doing extra training will eventually become counter productive. You see it with novices every year. Our novices aren't permitted to erg without a coach present for the first few weeks. This helps establish good technique and prevent bad habits on the erg. Rowing is a sport where long term goals are important and your training will reflect this. Have you done any 5k's yet? Or a 30 minute erg test?
