How to convert circular collar to boat neck?

Can anyone help me? I finished an Icelandic sweater (see photo attached) but don't like the circular collar. There is no shaping of the neck. I think a boat neck would suit. However, I have never knitted a garment with one and I can't figure out the only pattern instructions I can find.

Square Shawl

I made another square shawl for a niece. Although I have made lots of these, I find them interesting and relaxing. This one is made with Jamieson and Smith Shetland wool (colourway - Periwinkle) on 4.5mm needles. It measures 68 inches x 68 inches. I finished it with a sideways garter stitch border that I found in my "knitting book" and have no idea where I found it.

Stitch Dictionary

I checked this one out several times from the library across the street when it was still open. Finally I just bought it. Informative, concise, clear pictures and separated into single-color and multiple-color, light, medium and heavy-weight yarns has made this my go-to book for stitches.
