Passage Through Suez.

My apologies if this thread is under the wrong topic.
I am currently trying to research the cost and procedures for bringing a small vessel through the Suez Canal from Port Said to the Red Sea. The vessel is a 50ft sailing boat. All the literature that I can find seems to be relevant only for commercial vessels and seems to indicate that a Kafkaesque nightmare of agents, pilots and officials need to be navigated before the canal.
I would be grateful if anyone who has previously made this passage could offer some tips and advice, particularly with reference to canal dues etc.

Thanks in advance, Van

Van, your research has been excellent!!

Here is a link to our (LONG!) report on our north boat transit in March this year.
