You can mount a modern rail on the mast with modern sliders. A sail for a 38ft can that way be raised with your force, even without the use of winches.

Regarding the genoa, on normal conditions and good timing should not be a problem. With heavy weather you have normally the genoa already half furled, but if you have problems with medium winds (tacking) just furl the genoa a bit before tacking.

About the auto pilot, they come normally regulated to auto-tack with 45 of the apparent wind. Try that and if your boat needs more just increase 5 each time since you reach the situation you are more comfortable with.
