Cummins 6BT 5.9L-M starter removal

Two different diesel mechanics have attempted to remove the starter. They found the bolt heads of all 3 bolts stripped by a previous installer. Two bolts have been removed but not the one next to the engine even after dismantling the starter. They have presented me with two options:
1. Attempt to cut the starter off the engine
2. Remove the engine from the vessel, if option #1 is not successful
I would appreciate the opinions of the TF members.
