Check those out I like the first one.

I ended up just going to the hardware store and I found the same size brass screws that were in my engine blocks except they were in a thumb screw version

No tools required but I use a pair of channel locks to do one last half twist after I tighten with my fingers to make sure they are in there good and snug to prevent leakage.

If I lived where you lived I would at least do what I did or do the easy drain valves that are listed on the first link.

The exhaust headers have a connecting hose to drain those as well.
We kept a single small wrench for removing the drain plugs every trip during the winter, one plug located on the bottom side of each 4 block.

This is from an easy to access 2007 Moomba Outback DD.

I use brass drain plugs that aren't expensive, easy to drain and won't break or loosen up.
