Is C-Retriever a U.S. Flag Vessel?

All the news reports are saying the C-Retriever is a U.S. Flag Vessel (the Captain and Chief
Engineer were kidnapped off of it and taken to Nigeria).

But....I cannot find this vessel listed on the MARAD web-site as a U.S. Flag Vessel.

Furthermore, unless something has changed, U.S. Flag Vessels must have an
entirely American Crew,  not just the Captain and Chief Engineer.

So what's the real story behind the C-Retriever?.

I think there is something funny going on.

Let me know what you think.
