You have too much tongue weight on the Compass. This causes lifting of the front end. Although it won't come off the ground the front is too light for both traction and steering it will become a problem at faster speeds. Your Compass isn't a 4x4 other wise it would have kick in the rear wheels automatically for traction.
If you can shift more weight to the back (behind the trailer axle) to take weight off the hitch. Class II hitch should not exceed 200lb on the ball. Your boat and trailer may be heavier than you think.
