I really like following boat builds so I wish him the best of luck. A couple of other boat build channels that I enjoy are 'Salt and Tar' and 'Acorn to Arabella'.
I've enjoyed Salt and Tar as well. However, young Leo is an incredibly talented and well trained shipwright. It's amazing what he can do entirely on his own, very inventive.

As to whether it's really the same boat, apparently even philosophers get involved in that discussion: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus

I worked on a restoration of an 1877 iron barque, and all of the rig, decks, rails and half the hull have been replaced, maybe more by now. But the old 1877 barque is still there. She just underwent her second major refit and restoration since becoming a sailing museum.
