Here is the revised chart;

For leeway, I calculated 009
That is not how to calculate a running fix. You advance the first bearing (LOP) by the distance traveled.

60 D = ST
D= ST/60
D= 4*20/60
D=1.333 miles

Advance the 1600 bearing by 1.3 miles. Where that Advanced LOP intersects the 1620 LOP is the RFix.

These are my notes on doing a running fix
