When it comes to trailer brake weight limits, the first thing to ask is "Is the limit referring to UNLADEN weight, or GROSS weight?"
Some states require brakes on any trailer over 3000 lbs GROSS weight. Some states require brakes on any trailer over 1500 (or sometimes 2000) lbs. UNLADEN weight. Some states require brakes on ALL wheels of a trailer, some don't.
I have never seen a sway control or a WD hitch on a boat trailer. I suppose some people might use them, but I have never seen it done. I would also venture to say that most boat trailers don't have brakes, except for very large boats.
I would guess that the rig the OP saw is perfectly safe.
Well, OK, as close to "perfect" as one can ever get, at least.
