Have recently overfilled with water due to tank not being sealed properly therefore had about 2" of water in boat at opposite end to inspection hatch i.e. by the steps up to the cockpit how do i drain this water out as the wood flooring is still wet can anybody help

1.  The work I need to do is described as follows:
 I need to get under the marine ply floor to sort out  water which has ingressed from the on board storage tank which I discovered wasn't sealed properly.  I am currently trying to dry out by cutting a small disc shape hole and attempted to pump with power drill attachment. So far hasn't been too successful so have wedged up ply in the hope that natural air will dry out.
2.  Currently moored at Fradley Junction, near Lichfield Staffs (junction of Coventry, Birmingham & Fazeley and Trent & Mersey
3.  Cruising so far - nil. apart from the short stretch from Kings Bromley where she was slipped in on delivery to current mooring.  My wife is terrified of water so are waiting for her to have some professional handling and lock operation lessons in the Spring before we start cruising seriously.  Our aim is to get up on to the Ashby at some point next year

p.s I am a novice..
