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.
