If you can boil the wood multiple times it gets water-logged a bit faster. After boiling I tend to let it sit in the water all day, weighted down with a rock if needed, then dump the next day or later that day and boil some more. Overall I think it took a few days for my last batch. So boiled maybe 4-5 times.
I've also done like others suggested, find a bin big enough to hold it, weigh down with rocks and wait (more than a week for sure).
Malaysian wood was a lot faster, two boils was all it took for me.
