Short or long distance? Any slippery conditions? One plus about a boat versus any other type of trailer is usually less tongue weight. It is the tongue wieght that will throw you sideways in a turn. Not that the gross weight won't if you hit the brakes in a turn but it's better with a boat than say a camper. I've used a cj5 to haul some pretty heavy loads in the Colorado mountains, you just have to be way more careful than normal trailer towing. You will be more prone to jackknife. I tow with the longest wheelbase possible but my boats a bit bigger than yours.
