"The tentacle, reaching about 13 feet, was about the diameter of a broomstick and bore suckers only on its end. The arms were about four feet long and were covered in suckers, the largest about the size of a nickel."

How large/long could we expect the entire squid to be?

There's another thread on this, where I posted a link to a video clip that has Eric Hochberg examining the tentacle and estimating the length...
