Anyone found a good Accessory fusepanel? Maybe Waterproof?

About time to clean up the wiring on my Disco, trying to keep everything as simple as possible and am tired of seeing 5 inline fuseholders piggybacked off the battery terminal. Has anyone found a place that makes a good aftermarket accessory fuse panel? I would like to mount it close to the battery (underhood on my disco) and waterproof or water resistant would be a huge plus.

x2, from West Marine (don't remember the brand) I got an accessory fuse panel that was waterproof (read: splashproof) that used the same style fuses as my former TJ I put it in. After sealing it well with dilectric grease it was trouble-free for many years including a few deepish water crossings.

I installed one of these in my early Bronco before I sold it because the stock 7 circuit was anything but adequate!
