dead battery question

I have a dual battery installation on my 18OR. One battery went dead because I didn't turn the battery switch to OFF when I finished using the boat and the bilge pump killed the one battery. I have a 1988 Rude 150 Hp with 9 amp charging circuit. If I start the engine on the single good battery and then switch to both batteries to charge the remaining dead battery, do I risk blowing the rectifier or power packs, or would I be better off charging the dead battery separately?

Charge to either battery. Put Perko to BOTH. Run on BOTH next time out. David
