I want to know the answer to this as well. It might be a record, its at least the longest I've ever seen. Didn't expect it but it was wimpy all the way.
Dorian was a whole week from first final advisory to when it regenerated. Keep in mind that in post-analysis, this could be shorter. But, I looked through the records and only found these notable reformations.
*Helene last year was six days from dissipating near Lesser Antilles to reforming in the GoM
*Ivan 04 was four days from its last advisory near Virginia to reforming in the GoM
*Tropical Depression Five in 1988 dissipated near Cape Verde and reformed four days later near North Carolina
It appears that Dorian has the record, from what I can see. Georgette in 1986 dissipated and reformed five days later in the eastern Pacific.
For crazy regenerations though, I'd like to point out Cyclone Hondo in the southwest Indian Ocean.
11 days from its first final advisory to when it regenerated!
