I had a chance to pick up some used tower that had been very close to the 
Gulf of Mexico.  The tower was approximately 1000 feet from the Gulf and had 
hardline attached by tape.  Several of the joints were so badly rusted 
through, the sections were useless.

However, at my location, four miles from the Gulf, I have used tape for years 
and have never seen ANY rust at the tape joint when the tape was removed.

I suppose it all depends on the environment.
