I think that is the Lexus solution. That way they can charge you an
extra $!,000 to bring in the "fiber optic specialist" to fix it when
something goes wrong. :-)
That was actually my first idea but there are 6 lights on the mast to
monitor plus 2 on the bow and one at the stern. That is a lot of fiber
to run through places that are hard to get to.
