I believe that legally an anchor light is not required if you are in a charted anchorage. There are vastly more places to anchor than there are charted anchorages. In my experience, most use them in charted anchorages anyway. You do want to be seen. In a pinch, you might get away with hoisting a white light up a halyard, but it isn't legal.
You say you have all safety gear, so just confirming that includes a harness and tether, beyond a pfd that you will be comfortable wearing at all times. For single handing, I would consider these mandatory.
Have a great trip, sounds like a fun adventure.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
