Transporting Kayaks on RIB Dinghy

With the increasing utilization of kayaks just wondering if anyone out there has had much success carrying the kayaks strapped to the dinghy while towing. I have two 14.5 ft plastic kayaks and a 12ft RIB...they all are capable of being carried on deck when required but normally we tow the dinghy. Up to now we've strapped the kayaks to the side decks but they do tend to get in the way when sailing....one has to be careful not to allow one of the jib sheets to get underneath the kayaks when tacking etc. We are normally sailing within protected BC coastal waters so wave action is not usually an issue.
