I've been thinking about that. If you could seal everything front of 
the canard bulkhead from the cabin, then the only leak point would 
be just below the nose gear pivot. If you could have some sort of 
flexable boot that seals around the gear and down to the floor and 
bulkhead, that should seal that leak.
