The issue with compiling the watchdog plugin seems to have been resolved. Thx to Sean.

Hi, I tried to re-install the plugin (version from the OpenCPN plugin manager, but still no joy with a connection to Pypilot.  Do I need to download this direct from Github? If so, could you tell me the commands I need to download and compile it.
Many thanks
rm -Rf watchdog_pi/
git clone git://
cd watchdog_pi/
mkdir build
mv src/WatchdogUI.h  include/
cd build
cmake ..
sudo make install

This should work on a raspberry and the whole sequence can be repeated if needed. After this, restart OpenCPN and the plugin should be available. Note that one file needed to be moved for the compile to work. This is bound to be solved soon, but it won't affect the install script.
