I know that this wont help you in your situation but I would always suggest not to use boolians unless its the only option available, or the mose plausable, say spliting an object or making a complex hole for an explosion, they seem like a great tool but they cause lots of problems getting them to work correctly (as in this case)

What I would do in this situation is to combine the mesh and then merge the verts, its a longer way round but you will have total control of where everything goes and therefore greater control over the topology, takes a bit of planning getting the verts to where you want them to be but its better in the long run.

I think further in the tutorial (on the legs) Kurt has a similar problem and uses the combine mesh method

Iv deleted history and freeze trans with the neck i closed the ends and it worked so then i moved onto the tail Its so frustraiting iv smoothed out the side of the body i want to keep. And iv left the other a bit messy does this matter? Also the tail is really complicated shall i just make it again? If i do how do i decrease the tris.

Thanks kurt for taking the time to make this tuorial You are both a very nice man and the devil!
