Default GPS antenna location

I've got an older Sea Ray 27 with no Radar arch. I'm trying to find the best location for the GPS antenna. If I mount it on the dash will it read through the windshield ok.
Thanks,

yup - wire it up and try it first before you go blasting holes in the dash, though...

A little story for you... I had mine flush mounted on the hard top and water got it in it. After receiving the new antenna I had it in the cabin (temporarily) and it picked up all the sat's) so instead of mounting it out in the open, I mounted it behind my flush mounted GPS, inside the console, behind the windshield and under the hard top and it still gets all the sat's. Nice and dry
