My experience with Rescue Tape on topside fittings is that UV damages it quickly and it breaks. Rigger's tape is the way to go.

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.:)
I did the same thing last week...deep cut on index finger. No first aid kit available but a piece of paper towel and rigging tape put enough pressure on to stop the bleeding and prevent a mess. I removed it about six hours later when I got home after working on the boat for the rest of the day. Better than a band aid.
