Yep, 12 volts will sure get a sluggish 6 volt starter's attention!
At least for awhile.

They do make 8V batteries for this purpose---gives the 6V starter a bit more spin but doesn't stress it too much.

I remember seeing a lot of those 8V batteries in Mercurys for whatever reason. I think they wouldn't blow the 6V bulbs.
