Good Evening!

I received this Sailplane several years ago, from my dad after he picked it up at a garage sale. It has sat on a shelf collecting dust ever since. My intent is to get comfortable with this prior to moving forward with DLG's. I am not sure, but looks like it might be a Gentle Lady. Regardless, once I am able to identify it, I would like to assure it is both airworthy and will stand up to a High-Start launch.
If anyone knows what it is, could you provide me with the proper cg measurement, necessary washout in wings, and any inherent weaknesses? If the wing does not hold up to high-start launches, I would like to open the wing up, make the necessary reinforcements, and then recover. I want to make sure I put the odds in my favor before sending her up. Any and all suggestions are welcome, since it has been sometime since I have flown.
Pics attached, wing is 2m.

Regards,
Chris
