wet keel

Got my boat out of the water. front 2 foot of the botom of the keel (where it is damaged from hitting things) is wet. Drilled holes. Out came a few gallons of water.

Now it just remains wet and people tell me to let it dry a few months. Both because i dont have this time available and the cost of having it in the dry dock is way too high compared to the value of the boat, this is not an option.

What other options do i have ?
How can i get it dry enough to fix the damage and apply new paint ASAP ?
