Agree with "Pick One."
what happens when they both hit something bad and demand your immediate on-site presence to fix it?

Even if that doesn't happen you'll find yourself easily burning 8 hours per day on both.

Okay, after 'retiring'...

Clearly you already understand "retiring" is not 'stopping work.'
but it is YOU: choosing if you want to work [incl. on any given day, week, month, ever]
... 1 'master' you compromise that somewhat, 2 'masters' you'll likely loose that completely.

So I would go even further to say: Pick One and negotiate longer delivery
... pick the one that is most comfortable [for your 'retirement'].

(of course you want to be paid but you also imply you're far from hurting for money, so why overextend yourself? you've earned your retirement, go and enjoy it with things that matter a lot more, remember retirement isn't forever either.)
