Help removing teak toe rail

Hi all, my 1967 35 footer was hit in a storm last month by another boat. I am attempting to repair my forward, starboard teak toe rail which was banged up a bit, but repairable...I need to remove it first to repair it as its already lifted off the deck a bit. I drilled through the teak bungs this weekend with a 5/8" Forstner bit thanks to some good recommendations I found online and it worked really well. I now have the teak toe rail bolts all exposed with clean holes. I tried turning the bolts with a proper sized screwdriver but they are too tight. I will try with a powered screw gun this coming weekend, but I am not sure what to do if I can't get them to turn. I ordered some EZ Outs online and also some Unscrew 'ems from Jamestown Dist but not sure that is the right approach. Any thoughts? I am worried if I use a substance to loosen them that it will bleed into the wood and stain it.
