Working as Seaferer while Fiancee filed K1

Could be a problem. About 3 years ago I was involved with a Pinay who had a C1-D "Transit" visa. She used it as frequent business traveler to the U.S., though strictly speaking it's really not intended for that. I discovered after a little research that you cannot have another visa, i.e. K-1, CR-1 or IR-1, etc., while you have a valid C1-D. I don't remember the particulars, but I do recall the specific line saying a person cannot have any other U.S. visa concurrently.

As I understand, the seaferer has to go home to her country and re-enter US with K1 visa which is doable. The clarification I have is will it not cause K1 application to fail if the fiancee is a seaferer holding a C1/D during the time of application?

There is no intention of directly changing c1/d to spousal visa and marry in US. but the intention is to file K1 and once approve to fly to US and enter using the K1 visa and then get married and adjust the status from there.
