The Longest Consecutive Chain of Bids Ever?

I just had an auction tonight where we took every bid between 2 and 4NT! Here was the hand.

That would be 14 consecutive bids without skipping a single step! It probably isn't a record, but I wonder if anyone has seen one longer in a legitimate auction.

Here were the meanings:

 

2: 10-13 5+ unbal

2: Relay

2: 0-1

2N: Relay

3: 4+

3: Relay

3: 3

3: Sets trump, asks hand quality

3N: Minimum but not hopeless

4: Cue

4: Cue

4: A

4: Attempt to sign off

4N: 2 or 4 keycards

5: To play unless you have 4, mercifully breaking the chain

Pass: 2 keycards

Making 5 for +450

A somewhat anti climatic end to one of the more interesting auctions you'll see!
