Vise grips is my preference to grip stud/ screw shanks.

Plus one on this IF you truly need to drill it out. For something mobile a slow speed drill press and mounted vice make the job easier.

Cutting compound ++

Re: Frozen SS Screws Securing Winch to Mast

stainless galling is a buggar - this won't help you cut them out but on the next winch this stuff is good to stop galvanic corrosion between the ali mast and stainless screws:

stainless lubricant tef gel
