Whichever 3 you choose. Friday is not strictly available in a 3p game, but the Dog is recommended if you're having a difficult time.

I think the base game says don't use the soldier unless you are playing 4 players. However some of the scenarios alter this rule.

My friends and I always play with the Dog, and Friday is recommended for use in a 2-player game.

But, you can play with him in any game, if you choose. There is no strict requirement for this. It mostly just adjusts the difficulty of the game a tiny bit.

The instructions suggest playing with the Cook, Explorer, and Carpenter in a three-player game, especially if it's your first time, but you can use the Soldier instead of any one of them if you'd like.

I have never read, that the Soldier is not recommended in 3p. He is not in solo play, which makes sense, since his skills are mainly for hunting, and hunting is an action seldom useful in solo play. (Unless maybe the mission goal requires it, like in "Cannibal Island" or "King Kong".) However, Cook, Explorer, and Carpenter all have skills particularly useful in "Castaways", so to make the game as easy as possible for first attempt with 3p, selecting them should make sense.

The rule book is vague on purpose regarding this: it claims, you can either select or randomly pick your characters, whatever you like best. We normally do the later. For this, we put different colour pawns on each character sheet (the 4 from the base game plus Sailor, plus in the future Missionary) and corresponding pawns in a drawing bag. (We use the same bag afterwards during the game for drawing the Discovery Tokens.) With this "lottery" is determined, who plays which character, afterwards everybody can pick his or her colour to play regardless.
