Drilling drain hole in freezer.

I've got an old Malleys tucker box deep freeze that I've been using as a makeshift keezer.

It doesn't have a drain hole, and can be a PITA if I get spills in it. I was thinking of drilling a hole in the floor at one of the corners and installing a drain pipe. Maybe a short length of copper tube soldered to the inside, with a silicone plug. That way I can attach a hose on the outside and flush water through it to clean it without moving it. I could also potentially use epoxy and PVC pipe.

Does anyone know if freezers usually use coolant lines in the floor? If so, I'll try the cornflour trick both inside and out to locate the pipes and drill slowly!
