What I do on boats is to run right off the battery to one of these waterproof breakers. Then on to a breaker panel for all the electrical needs. But on our cars I think just one breaker right off the battery could feed the entire car just like the stock fusible link. I use Blue Seas and they have been very dependable.

fleming442 Bruce, you in the house?
Yah, mon. Y'all are on the right track. Those fusible linked 10 gauges at the starter and alternator can absolutely be consolidated somewhere other than the starter. I've been looking for a multiple, MAXI fuse distribution block for a while, and haven't seen one. You could probably slide with 30a ATCs, but I'd feel more comfortable with 40-50a since they feed the ignition switch.
You can also run an upsized charge lead directly from the alternator to the battry.
