We've made the trip twice, the most recent being 3years ago. Both times were very enjoyable and uneventful. Someone must be pulling your chain - the only pirates you'll see are in Colon. You shoud try going "through" despite what you "heard".
With that size boat, don't try to do it in one day.

http://www.pancanal.com/eng/index.html Something like a $495 toll fee, plus more complicated surcharges including a $50 security fee. Plus handlers, and a number of other ups and extras, not the least of which will be mooring/dockage fees while you are waiting to be called through. (Commercial traffic has priority.)
