Trailer Tongue Weight and Sway

I''ve always found that sway was caused by not enough tongue weight. I had a 25 ft Cape Dory that would sway all over the road when towed anywhere close to 50 mph. I moved the undercarriage of the trailer back about 7 inches on the trailer frame and that solved the problem completely .....Rick
