I'd do them over. If your jars got water logged then the substrate is too moist. Keep the tape on them and remember. You don't need a high flame or a heavy boiling point. Just so the water bubbles...not splashes all over the place;-)

I'm not experienced enough to give you any real, usable advice on this. I will tell you about my experience though.
I boiled my jars in a large pot. I didn't put tape on them, instead I covered the tops with tin foil. Two of my jars fell over while boiling. I innoculated them anyway, and they are almost fully colonized now and look the same as the ones that didn't fall over. I guess no water got inside.

If you think water actually did get inside, then I would redo the jars, it isnt that much work. You can reuese the substrate. Just spread it out on a baking sheet and put it in the oven at a relatively low temp until its dry and start over.
