Water inside the tubes of my inflatable

At the end of last season I deflated my Avon dinghy, rolled it up and left it outside in the garden

Now I discover that I left the valves open, and rainwater has gathered in the rolled up dinghy and is now inside the tubes - quite a significant quantity judging by the weight

How would I go about removing this water (ideally without cutting a hole in the tubes)

Many thanks

Winter in Falmouth, summer on board Rampage.
Inflate, rotate tubes so valves are at low point, open valves, water comes out. If you can't get the valves to be the low point when inflated, only partially inflate so that you can achieve the same effect. Alternatively, use the inflator pump in the deflate mode, suck out all the air and the water will then be sucked out through the pump......
