You only need the PE license if you are offering your services to the public. You have already earned the "Professional Engineer" title and you may continue using the PE designation if you wish. Maintaining your license current serves no purpose if you are retired and no longer doing engineering work. Colleagues that go into academia and no longer practice often let their license expire, but they retain PE in their titles. You could maintain your membership in the various professional associations if you want to stay connected and current in areas of interest.

As to your comment on "uncertainty of my knowledge base" I commend you on being aware of your limitations. It is obvious that you are not a victim of the "Dunning-Kruger Effect" (McArther Wheeler case) Engineering is a very large field and no one would be expected to be versed in all areas, hence the various engineering disciplines. Even within a specific engineering discipline there are areas of specialty. Speaking from experience, the only engineers that know everything are those that are recently graduated, but that quickly changes once they get out into the real world.

Best of luck on your retirement and may good health stay with you. With an engineering background you should have no trouble taking on personal projects and staying busy. Do not over extend yourself. Just because you can fix or repair something doesn't mean that you should (Saabs excluded). You may end up having to set priorities. Don't forget the honey do's, enjoy your hobbies and keep volunteer and mentoring opportunities in mind.
