Helpful Expert Reply:

I looked up the towing capacity of your 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport and found that it can tow up to a 5,000 lb trailer so it would easily handle a boat that weighs 947 lbs.

The Draw Tite hitch part # 75054 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your Cherokee as well and would wok great as it also have more capacity than you'd need.

You'll need trailer wiring to so that you can control the lights of the trailer. For that you'd want the part # 118354 which installs easily and is very reliable.

Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
