Depends on gthe nature of incident and what we need to know - ITU database is usually first call for MMSIs, given the (very) large number of non-updated CG66s in the system.
To be honest, for a normal distress incident, we wouldn't usually go to CG66 at all. It's more used for overdues, prolonged searches etc rather than identifying craft to send a lifeboat to.
