If you are still having problems, you may try this trick:
After mounting and opening the dmg, hold the "option" key down while you are dragging the OpenCPN icon to the "Applications" folder. This makes sure that it copies the application instead of just a "pointer to the application".
This is the reason that most developers put an installer in the dmg instead of just the application, because some users don't understand the difference between a pointer to an application and the actual application itself.
Just my 2 cents worth,
