Yep, we estimated it was about 4-5' between the dorsal and tail, so 6-7' is conservative. Cruised right in front of the boat about 40 yds away, made a u-turn after passing along the port and then cruised about 100 yds off the bow to eat/play with something.
It was moving too slow to be a usually high strung mako, and was definately not dark blue or black like the top of a blue.... stradiated grey to white was the color scheme on this landlord. We had it in full topside view for a good 3-4 minutes.
Of course Pierre had to jump in to get a closer look. Too late!
