If anyone is depending on the rigging tape to keep cotter pins in they are installing the pins incorrectly. A pin that is opened 15 degrees will not fall out.

The tape is used to keep sails and lines from snagging on the pins.

I have used rigging tape to make a bandaid in the past - a little paper towel and some antibiotic ointment and it will not fall off when soaking wet.:)
