So if the unit was positioned on the console of the rib with a built in anntenna it should pick up a good signal considering there is nothing overhead to block it, and therefore it it would be as good as a unit with an external anntenna .

The only other thing to consider is the position of the aerial relating to the tranducer. I have both an internal and external aerial on my boat but run the whole system on the external. Apart from it is in a slightly better position for a clear view it is also directly above the transducer which means all my positions taken from wrecks are exact rather than offset by a few metres.
This may or may not be important to you unless you dive........
