Compass on Steel Boat Coachroof

On my centre cockpit steel boat, the steering unit is mounted to the bulkhead - I do not have a separate pedestal.

I am now looking to install a compass like this one.

Is it feasible to mount this directly on the (steel) coachroof, and compensate it adequately? Has anyone ever seen such an installation?

Thanks for your time
