I put off circumnavigating for a while, the first time. When I did, I wanted to bring all three (the maximum amount back then) of my BHs with me.
The third one was a sort of slave. My first two BHs got boats and beds and carrot-on-sticks (didn’t actually use those that much), while the third one swam across oceans, slept on the ground, and was sent back regularly to retrieve beds I forgot.
I actually got the Boots of Speed last. Funny.
