Small boat single handed hoisting

Hey all, this is my first season with my Precision 165. I sail in the mountains in Colorado where it's can be really gusty and I'm having difficulty hoisting my main solo. I have an electric outboard to motor out of my slip, but I was hoping to get some suggestions on effective tiller rigs, some sort of makeshift autopilot I can use to point into the wind long enough for me to get to the foredeck and hoist.

Any suggestions or tricks would be appreciated!
