Do everythng you said but don't bother bending it around the opening. No need to do that. You're going to install the hatch stiffeners and will have plenty of opportunities to seal the edge of the hatch opening with epoxy. Just sand the cloth flush with the edge of the opening after it cures. You haven't made a mistake, really. The only thing I would add to your list would be to put some newspaper in the bottom of the boat under each opening to catch the inevitable drips.

Happy building!
