Handheld GPS''''s below deck

Hi,
im about to buy a handheld GPS(in particular im looking at a Garmin GPS76),my concern is the reception below deck,of a fibreglass yacht,

has anyone noticed any problems with your reception below decks?

some different models have the option of a remote antenna(the GPS76 does not),is this really needed?

thanks for any info

the GPS76 antenna type is a "built-in quadrifilar" maybe this type doesnt require remote antennas below decks???
