I don't know what to say. I boil for a minute, flipping after 30 seconds. I think if you modify the risings as I suggested, the boiling will be less of a problem.

One thing I have noticed is I get better results if I don't over proof the first time. The directions say to let the dough rise until it's doubled in size. If you let it go beyond that, that's when you start to have problems with the finished product.

Charlie, I have had less than perfect bagels they put in a bag at the bagel store. They tasted just as good as their mates. Unlike them, who will sell anything, you get to eat the imperfect ones hot out of the oven in the kitchen. It's the cook's bonus-- a treat. Serve the others to your family. Personally, I like the looks of yours, nice color and they look perfectly chewy like a bagel should.
