Your OK. Remember this is DR and celestial navigation "an art", not a
manmade accurate to 16 decimal places and dependant on electrons
system. And I threw in a twist here.

OK everything is consistant.

OK. My fault I didn't specify that the previous current still applied.

Use CDMVT and the current.

Your navigation is consistant. I threw you off with Q3. But as you'll
see NOT LOST.

Good FIX.

Yes. Easy way is by inspection, using GHA and the Nautical Almanac.
