    If I may, this is a guess on my part so take it for whatever it might be worth.
    If one wanted to get a "fix" with a couple of sun shots, as you seem to do, the shots should be several hours apart, so as to get a good cut between lines of position. I take it that you are standing in the same location for the 3 shots you described, and note that they were all within 26 minutes. The angular spread between lines of position would not be good.

    I hope the foregoing does not turn out to be all wet, and that it does not confuse you. Also, I think you need to provide a dead reckoning position is needed.
