Can you link to the Code of Federal Regulations rule on that, or cite another source? I like to keep my boat 100% in compliance but my understanding was that you must have "the rules" (a copy of colregs) on the boat, but I always understood that you did not need charts or a pilot aboard. Personally, I think that an anchor and charts should be required, but I've never seen, or heard of a regulation requiring that in the USA.
