Question about my onboard battery charger?

The previous owner of my Montgomery 17 installed the ProSport 6 battery charger in the boat and it currently is hooked up to one deep cycle battery.

This particular charger says that it is made to charge one battery only, but I was wondering if I could hook two batteries up parrallel as one bank, having the charger actually hooked to one battery but the batteries be connected together as one?

The ProSport 6 is described as having - 1 output, 12v, 6amp capacity.
Here is a link to it if it helps.

I am hoping I can do this to try to avoid having to buy a second charger in the event I decide to install two batteries in the boat.....
